Did you know that they grow on trees? Who knew such a thing existed?! They are either shaped like a tomato or like a heart. First they need to be peeled, then you can eat them raw, cooked or dried; cut up into slices or eaten like an apple! They are high in glucose, with a balanced protein profile, and possess various medicinal and chemical uses - and are not to be eaten on an empty stomach I've heard.
Since I've never had them before I didn't know what to expect. The one I had was a bit firm and honestly didn't have much flavor. They can also be eaten when very ripe by cutting off the top and scooping out the insides...how interesting! I will definitely eat these again.
I'm trying to not be afraid of food I've never seen before and have NO idea how to eat - that's what Google's for, right? :) Thanks again D for sharing your exotic foods with me!
