dude, totally found this obscure exotic fruit! They call it pineapple and it tastes awesome! You should try it?

I like rambutans, I'd say they're more uncommon than exotic though
>>
>>7353037
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

Of course

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

Mangosteens always look like fake cartoon made up fruit to me
Which is great because they are also delicious

>>7354591
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.

Anyone ever tried one of these bad boys?

My favourite thing about these is the way the petals on the bottom tell you how many segments it'll have. It's totally useless, but it's like thanks nature, informative packaging.

I'd never had these till a few months ago, but the flavor was so familiar as soon as I took a bite. Almost worth buying again, but they're about $1.50 a piece around here.

>>7357778
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.

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.
