ITT: Weird/obscure fruit you've eaten.
Pic related- a rambutan. Tastes kinda like a grape.
My neighbour brought home some weird shit that he made me try, kind of like a new kind of onion.
Tasted sort of juicy and sweet with a noticable crunch at every bite.
He called it an ''Apple''
We burned that fucking witch and now i am back to eating cabage and onion like a good godfearing peon
Who can forget going to a birthday party when we were younger and seeing the lineup of sodas, like orange, grape, coke, lemon-lime, rambutan, and brandy-seared peach
Or the classic children's song, "I love to eat, eat, eat (ackee arils and finger limes)
What a fit we would throw when we were forced to finish out steamed broccoli or roasted marsh mallow root salads before we could leave the table!
Or the taste of dad's cock
I guess it's called passionfruit on english and according to internet, it's relatively easy to find canned and fresh passionfruit on every country.
The plant must grow preferably on tropical environments, but i have a lot of them and i live on Chile (mediterranean climate).
It has a light acid and juicy flavor, but has nothing to do with pomegranate, you can directly suck the pulp from the fruit without seeding.
it tastes the exact same. maybe a tiny bit different texture
pretty nice, like a nutty slightly bitter lettuce
Has NEVER been commercialized
Has to be foraged from the forests of the Midwest USA... in a only 4 week window
You really do have to forage for them, tho.
SOMETIMES RARELY they can be found at obscure impromptu roadside "farmers market" wagons where the farmer is also selling corn in the husk by the laundry basket full.
>be me after foraging pawpaws from woods an shit
>have hundreds of leftover seeds for days after gorging on pawpaws
>went on mission to put pawpaw seeds in random places all over town and back roads.
>Now am adult, driving around random, see young pawpaw tree where I put some seeds

They sell smal "commercialized" grafted pawpaw saplings here. I'm gonna plant some this spring or autumn in my fruit garden and try it out. In Yurop tho, so not sure if it will live through the winter.
this is a bit offtopic but when exactly does bloodoranges grow?
my local market (small one) has them for like a month a year but i never remember when. driving me nuts since i really love them, like oranges but way better
possibly the greatest thing ever posted on this board.
I spent months in south east asia and never bothered trying it. found some in a supermarket here and they were the equivalent of $30 each. pretty small as well.
how much are they in other countries?
It tasted bad when I had it.
not important or well known.

It isn't Obscure, asshole.
Get on the fucking Pomelo train bitches, shit's like a dry, less sweet orange.
>make pomelo thread
>come back to check before bed
>see this thread a thread away from the one I made
>feel bad because some anons might think it was thus thread's OP being an attention whore
I-I'm sorry. I didn't think there would be a neat fruit thread already...
Where I'm from they're not even slightly obscure, but for some reason a lot of people give me puzzled views through the internet when I bring gooseberries up.
Picking them is a bitch though, fucks are spiky. Still not as much of a pain as picking raspberries though, at least gooseberries have the decency to have their spikes be long, but infrequent.
Actually, there's a fuckton of fruit in those. I just tried one yesterday. The only problem is, if you don't like bitter things, you'll need to "peel" each slice, as well as peeling the fruit initially. It's kind of similar to the pain in the ass of getting pomegranate seeds.
Not that exotic, but I just to know a guy who genuinely thought they were called syphilis
That's a vegetable you fucking vegetable. Also the only thing I still can't eat, save for some really strong blue cheeses. The bitterness just throws me off like nothing else, even with grated cheese and out of the oven.
>ctrl f acerola
are you all even trying.
>ridiculous quantity of vitamin c
>naturally sour, if you add honey or sugar it turns heavenly
>makes one of the best fruit juices
>tree is medium and gorgeous, makes a great garden decoration
>a single tree makes so much fruit I get one medium-big bowl A DAY during season, which turns into 1-2 liters of juice a day
>just try it already, I don't even care how you'll find them, I just must keep spreading the love I get from these heavenly little fuckers
>also look into pitanga but it's not for everyone
