Challenge

Here's where you can set a challenge or invite other Wordwizard members to take part in a word-related game of some kind.

To stop things getting too confusing, it's probably best to create a separate thread for each new game or challenge.

The fruit of experience. Or the fruit of the loom.

A macadamia nut has an extremely hard shell.

No. The answer is more of a pun but it is still a difficult fruit to eat

Strawberries apparently come in small puns, but they're not difficult to eat.
Grapefruit, because even after you've made the grape disappear, the fruit is still left?
Pommie granite?

Yes. It is a pomegranate because it is granite and very difficult to eat with all the seeds

Where I live, a more readily available candidate than the pomegranate is any kind of stone fruit.

I fear searching for more candidates might prove fruitless.

Not yet: what about the choke cherry (liable to cause asphyxiation) or the granadilla (explosive)?

You are right. I forgot about fruit cake. They can last for decades and get harder as they age
