New Fruits!

On my last trip to India I tried every new fruit I could find.  Now I have found some new fruits!  I don’t know what this orange one is called but it smells incredible.  I tasted a little and it doesn’t taste as good as it smells.  I asked a neighbor and the apartment guard what it is and neither of them knew, so they told me not to eat it.  Oh well, too late for that.

According to my neighbor, the little yellow ones are goose berries.   They taste a little like star fruit.  My housekeeper told me I should eat them with salt, and I did.  Very good!new fruits goose berry eatenDSCF3278

I can’t remember what the brown ones are called.  When you pick them they squirt a thick white, sticky, glue-like liquid at you.  No surprise I was covered with it. My neighbor told me I have to wait until it ripens before I taste it.  It’s supposed to be delicious.DSCF3279 DSCF3280

I’ll have to wait and see.

    Hi Roberta the brown one ( I didn’t know that it squirts sticky stuff); is called a Chicoo or Chikee (can’t remember which). it basically looks like a brown kiwi fruit. with an incredible taste. u can find at the markets. I won’t describe the taste. it will certainly surprise.

    the star fruit I tasted for the 1st time this past september. can’t say I liked or disliked. it was a sour type fruit. probably needed spices.
