Default all this talk about fruit bowls has got me thinkin

ok, i realize you can use fruit to make your bowl from, apple bowl, pear bowl, etc. but what about using fruit in your bowl. it seems to me that you would get the same effect if you were to take a phunnel or vortex bowl, then take a few slices of your favorite fruit and lay it around the outside of the bowl before packing your shisha in. so basically you'd have the rim of the bowl, then a layer of fruit, and then your shisha. seems to me that when heated the fruit would give of steam and juices that would help add to the flavor of the smoke just as it does when you're using the fruit as the bowl. also it would be a great way to help use less shisha in your phunnel or vortex bowl if you're just smoking by yourself.

has anyone tried this? if so how did it go over? i'd set this up and try it out for myself, but alas i am still hookah-less. lol

Had some cherry tobacco that came with pieces of cherry it in. Always gunked stuff up and didn't add much to flavor. I'd be interested how fresh fruit would compare. It would probably carmalize pretty quick then start to burn... let us know how it goes!

I put frozen strawberry pieces in the bowl before, not much added taste, and clean up was a PITA.

thing is, once the fruit caramelizes the flavor becomes more pronounced as the natural sugars are getting heated up. tastes really good

I say it all the time:

In 500 years of hookah tradition, if an improvement were this simple, it would have been invented already, and it would be the standard.

Perhaps if the fruit were chopped pretty fine so that there was more surface area for the heat to act on the internal juices it might work. Of course, it might also just gunk up the works. Just a thought. Smoke happy.

its really hard nowadays to try and find innovative ways for hookah. as said befor, its a 500 year old tradition somethings that were thought up are already done.

You managed to completely misunderstand me. Nice job.

Nowhere did I imply that innovation was impossible or otherwise undesirable. All I was implying is that if it were something as simple as slicing up an apple and throwing it in the tobacco, I'm sure we'd have been informed.

I wouldn't even bother with it. Seems like the cleean-up is a PITA, not much flavor, the fruit would burn, and you'd have to find a way to make the pieces really small.

I don't think you would get that much flavor from it, I mean try it?
