Miracle Fruit West Africa - Tips

Hello Travis,
I went to the Wikipedia.org page, then saved as on the computer. I will try to print out and show to the people. It will be very difficult, unless I can find a larger photos and get it printed in Color.
I have a friend from Ghana, he may be able to help, I hope to find it.
YOU WROTE
Hello Andy,

Best wishes to you.

When you are in West Africa, you should try to find the "Miracle Fruit":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miraculin

It is called a miracle fruit and is only found in West Africa natively (the article below mentioned Ghana as one of the countries). It causes everything else tasted to be sweet afterwards for one hour, but especially sour things (rhubarb, lime wedges, etc.). It is a very pleasant and unique effect. There is nothing else like it and scientists have been trying to bioengineer it for many years. The wikipedia entry mentions some local names for the fruit.
