Default perfected my fruit top bowl...

I think I finally got it right... coring & carving of a fruit top. My first attempt was on a pear and it was VERY disappointing, I take that failure lol but last night I tossed some cinnamon al fakher in an apple bowl and it was more successful than I had expected. Not only was the flavor amazing, but the clouds were plentyful, even my girlfriend said it was her favorite.

I think i'm going to make my first video on my technique for fruit tops...

Any of you have some suggestions for great fruit top / tobacco combinations??

I just smoked for 1.5 hours out of an apple funnel.
The shisha was mango fusion... so it was nothing special. Took two sets of bad coals.

We will take some pictures of the "tools" we use for our fruit bowls when we can get a camera working. It's actually very simple if you have two simple tools for carving/cutting. First thing first is get an apple core cutting tool and core it from bottom to top, doing it from bottom to top allows the fruit to sit perfect on the hookah, next I use a cheap tablespoon and cutting/shaping the top of the fruit; use a cheap spoon cause it is thin and cuts better than the expensive thick spoons.

No knife is needed when using this method and it works perfect 100% of the time. Total cost is about $2-$3 for the apple core cutter, and maybe $0.50 for the spoon. I hope we can get pictures soon cause i see so many people using knives and having an odd shape and/or not a hole that goes all the way through making it harder to pull. Once the bowl if formed I take a small piece of aluminum foil and shape it around my finger but with little wings to sort of cover the hole so nothing falls all the way down.

worse case we will try to do a video of it on our webcam... not good quality but you'd get the idea. Welcome to the fruit bowl btw.

We need some videos, so that will be cool if you did some for the Hookah Pro Community

Some good mixes:
Esk Apple / Cinnamon
Hazelnut / Cinnamon / Irish Cream (or any combination of two of these)
Grape / Mint
Peach / Cinnamon

I made a bowl out of a grape once.

It caught fire as soon as I put the coals on.

When my buddy at the smoke shop first introduced me to the Apple bowl idea I started experimenting with other carvable foods. My favorite was using a cucumber. It wil only last a few minutes but it is definately worth the time spent making it. I used Fuzion rose and when I took a drag I cold taste the cucumber and smelled the rose. really refreshing! I'm still trying to find a way to prop a melon on my hookah to have a giant honeydew head...I'm assuming it might be a3 or 5 hour sesh if it works =]

I can validate Esk.apple with cinnamon. i like to mix Romman cinnamon with AF esk apple and it should work great with an Esk. apple head.
