Pros and cons of fruit hookahs

To begin with, we objectively weigh both sides of the coin: the advantages and disadvantages of fruit hookahs. So, their key advantages include:

  • Saturated natural aroma and taste that cannot be obtained in any chemical way.
  • The possibility of long-term smoking of hookah due to the fact that fruit juice prevents the rapid drying of tobacco.
  • The ability to smoke fruit hookah is an order of magnitude longer than usual, since tobacco smolders on a warm fruit very slowly. In addition, a fruit bowl can hold more tobacco than classic earthenware.
  • The aesthetic appeal of such a hookah and the ability to make beautiful stylish photos with friends.

However, beautiful fruit hookahs have some disadvantages:

  • Since the fruit consumes a large amount of heat, it is necessary to maintain a high temperature throughout the entire time of smoking.
  • Making a fruit bowl requires certain skills and time,
  • The consumption of tobacco and coal when using fruit hookah is also increased,
  • As already noted, a fruit bowl for a hookah is a disposable thing, despite its rather lengthy preparation.

The main types of fruit hookahs

If you wish, you can cook a hookah on almost any fruit - if only it was dense enough and easily processed to give a bowl shape. However, there are some of the most popular fruits that are best suited for such purposes. We will talk about them further.

Grapefruit Hookah

This fruit has a pleasant sour-tart taste and goes well with fruit and berry flavoring mixtures of tobacco (this is cherry, strawberry, wild berries, orange, apple). Tobacco mixes with mint, menthol and other fresh flavors are also very popular - in combination with the sophistication of the astringency of grapefruit, they create an original effect.

The inside of the grapefruit bowl is strengthened with a mesh or toothpicks, then the tobacco is poured and covered with several layers of foil covered with small holes.

The peculiarity of this bowl is also that the moist and juicy grapefruit gives the taste a special brightness, and the jam turns out to be strong and rich.
Such a hookah smokes for about an hour and a half.

Pineapple Hookah

This is one of the most popular options for large companies, since the size of the pineapple allows you to put a lot of tobacco in it. It is also most harmoniously combined with berry and fruit flavors, and in itself has a pleasant bitter-sweet aroma.

The main highlight of this fruit bowl is the size of the pineapple that allows you to make a slaughter of two tobaccos at once: this allows you to create completely unique tastes.

To make a hookah bowl from such a fruit, it is advisable to choose a slightly immature, and therefore more dense fruit. Inside the bowl, you will also need to make a grate of toothpicks before falling asleep.
Pineapple hookah can be smoked for two hours, the main thing is to change the coals on time.

Hookah on an orange

Orange has a pronounced sour-sweet aroma and goes well with both fruit and berry, as well as citrus flavors of tobacco. But, in general, the orange is versatile and goes well with all tastes - so it’s ideal for mixing experiments.

It is clear that the cup from it is slightly smaller than, for example, from grapefruit or pineapple, so for long gatherings of a large company this option is not suitable, it is rather for gourmets and lovers to relish.
By the way, the taste of orange hookah is similar to grapefruit, however, it does not have a characteristic bitterness, and, in general, is sweeter.

The only minus of the orange bowl is that such a hookah smokes only 40-45 minutes.

Pomegranate Hookah

Pomegranate gives a rich sweet and sour aroma to which berry, chocolate, coconut flavors of tobacco are the best suited.

Turning this fruit into a hookah bowl is a painstaking task, but still feasible. To do this, grenades need to be cut in half, and then cleaned from grains so that the wall thickness is about 2.5 cm.Then, as with any fruit bowl, you will need to make a hole, a grate of toothpicks, put tobacco and foil.

Another feature of pomegranate hookah is its excellent smoke. This property has found a bowl of pomegranate, thanks to moisture-saturated bones: this fruit perfectly distributes heat and practically does not burn.
Pomegranate hookah can be smoked on average for about 1 hour.

Hookah on an apple

Despite the fact that the apple is a fruit quite familiar for our latitudes, the hookah on it turns out to be one of the most exquisite. Usually, hard varieties are taken to make a fruit bowl.
Green apples give a pleasant sweet and sour aroma: they perfectly combine the berry flavors of tobacco, as well as melon and mint.
Red apples, on the contrary, give tobacco a sweet and delicate aroma, and here you can use candy flavors to enhance the effect, and fresh or sour ones to achieve harmony.

Since the apple has a rather thin peel, the use of a hard variety is fundamentally important: otherwise the fruit simply “crumbles”. If you choose the right apple, you can smoke such a hookah for about 40 minutes.

Hookah on a melon

Melon has a very sweet, soft and delicate aroma, which perfectly combines almost all fruit tobaccos (you can also add the taste of mint or coconut). The characteristic sweetness of this fruit bowl is given by the juice evaporated during smoking.

Wet and juicy melon practically does not overheat, smokes softly and easily.
A special chic is melon hookah in milk: the fruit and the filler in this combination fully reveal their taste.

Due to its size, it, again, is perfect for relaxing with a wide circle of friends. For a hookah, it is best to choose either a freshly ripened or slightly unripe fruit. If you change coal in time, the smoking process of a melon hookah can drag on for 1.5 hours.
