Don't know what that is! Looks heavy on the vitamin C, though.
Keep the fruit posts coming!! I want to see fruits from all over the world. Kind of an obsession of mine. Favorite fruit: Rambutan! Though I always get bits of the rind wedged under my thumbnails. --CC at Onely
Hello Andy, I agree with you there are always strange fruits and vegetables at every new places we go.The one you show look like fig outside but like peach or pumpkin inside.Thats the beauty of traveling.I have never seen one but sure like to try.Did you eat it?
I did not try it, I have gone to Iraq, I will go see isolate tribes or go to Africa. However when it comes to eating strange foods, I go weak.
That looks a bit like a "mamey sapote", as we called them in Hawaii. Of course in Hawaii, lots of fruits go by different names!
The names of fruit are always lost in tranlation.
We called them Sapote in Ecuador as well. They grow on trees. I fed them to the tourists at a jungle lodge alot. they taste like sweet squash with big seeds.

that's a great quote: "the grand experience of travel is not talking about what I understand, it'[s] trying to explain what I do not." Very poetic!
