…I’ve been making an effort to sample some of the produce available here. Some is similar to what I’ve had in the U.S.; and some not so much. Here are a few of the recent things I’ve tried that I remembered to take pictures of.
To me, it tastes like a cross between a kiwi and a pear.
I scooped out the pulp with a spoon to eat it, spitting out the seeds. True to its name, it has the consistency of custard and taste similar to an apple.
It was the size of a grapefruit and tasted similar to honeydew melon.
Lychee (or Litchi):
I posted these photographs in another post…
…but here’s one that looks quite a bit different:
The texture is similar to a grape and it tastes like…perfume. I’ve never actually tasted perfume, but if you could put a flavor to it I think it would be this.
I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but it was white. After baking it for quite some time, it did not get as soft as the sweet potatoes I’m used to, and was not as sweet.
The way the seeds looked on the inside, it reminded me of an eggplant. The texture was that of a firm pear…but I’m not sure if it was ripe yet. The taste was like an unripe pear, but then again it may not have been ripe. I think I’ll have to revisit this one.
