Default Bowls Made from Fruit?

I am thinking of trying this, does the fruit give off any extra flavor, or is it just for looks?

If you don't know what I mean, I have seen people use real fruit and cut it into a bowl for their hookah, like half a cantalope and such.

i havent had a fruit as a bowl but iv had one as a base... it did give it a bit of extra flavour but not that much, its just for looks really

I think someone should make a durian fruit bowl. If you don't know what a durian is just google that beast.

Ugh, that's just vile.

Thought about using a dragonfruit as a bowl.

I've used an apple. The result was less than spectacular. Added a slight apple taste at the expense of not being able to get the tobacco to burn right. I might try it again someday, but my verdict is to slice the apple and eat it with some tea while I smoke.

Tobacco can be eaten ^_^

As well as glycerin, honey, and molasses.

But in all seriousness I wouldn't bother using a fruit as a bowl myslef cause I would think it would be kinda gross at the end...with all the burnt fruit and ash...yargghh!

i think the only way to tell would be to use a nonflavored tobacco in a fruit bowl and see if you can get that flavor in the smoke. it's fun to try but not worth imo
but still fun if someone else makes it for you:

I heard they are using baby watermelons for bowls, you can eat the heart of the watermelon, then smoke the rest.

It's more of the novelty of doing it. I find the only thing that the fruit bowls do is keep the tobacco more moist durring your smoking session. It's mainly just for the fun of it. It doesn't really make your session any better.
Just get a good egyptian bowl and enjoy some Nakhla

Most hookah bars around me all use grapefruit bowls. Haven't used a single clay egyptian bowl at a hookah bar yet.

Yep, haram sad to waste it, unless it's a tasteless fruit you are not going to eat, and then why would you use it for a bowl? it's a novelty party thing.
