Blackberries--Don’t like them(suggies) but use in smoothie.
Blueberries--Sometimes will eat them, also use in smoothie.
Cantaloupe--Will eat.
Cactus Pears--Are seasonal and love them.
Cherimoya--Once a year.
Cherries--Black will eat but love the seasonal, but like the multi color ones.
Grapes--Red and black are best, sometimes will eat green. Some controversy over whether they can cause RENAL failure in animals such as dogs and skunks.
Fresh Figs--Will eat and like them but they have to be very ripe and soft, almost sicky sweet before my babies will eat them.
Honeydew melon--Eat it.
Orange flesh honeydew--They prefer this type over reg. Honeydew but is a seasonal fruit.
Guava--Will eat but must be very smelly and at pick of ripeness.

Pears--Willeat certain ones over other types of pears.
Seckel Pears-Only seasonal and usually ate once or twice.
Papaya--Two kinds and are good for sugar gliders--Mine will eat if totally ripe and the Maradol has to be yellow all over. I also use in every smoothie we make.
Pineapple--Has to be very sweet.
Plums--Don’t like very much but we keep trying on occasion.
Persimmons--Two types-One type has to almost be totally mushy before they are ripe and then babies will eat them.

Star fruit--Has to be very ripe and won’t sweeten after picked like pineapple.

Raisins-Treats, rarely.
Che Chew nuts from Australia--Rarely and hard to get.

Other foods:
Almonds as treat snacks
Honey Wheat Bread--As treat once every week or two, unless I have babies on me when eating a sandwich then they get a little bite. Only a ¼ by ¼ in OR less piece.
Lowfat yogurt 2-3 times a week.
