Finally splashed out at the farmers market for all the exciting Florida-grown exotic fruits on offer… Up to food 183 now in my 200 paleo foods challenge!
Jackfruit is an odd fruit: it tastes a bit like tropical punch or bazooka gum. Like all the sweet tropical fruits whizzed together indistinguishably into one fruit.
The soursop was an entirely new experience: strange pudding-like but fibrous texture, unique sweet flavor with subtle sour undertones. Especially good in smoothies.
The yellow dragonfruit and the cocoa pod were definitely the winners: the yellow dragon fruit was a bit like a crisp juicy lychee, or maybe a sweet lemon sorbet, eating it was like scooping up little spoonfuls of a finely crafted gourmet dessert.
The cocoa pod was a whole new delicious and strange way to taste chocolate. Very raw and wild; the white seed casing were especially tasty.
Pink dragonfruit tends to be rather bland, I guess all the vibrancy goes into the color. Which really is glowingly incredible.
Actually I did have one truly delicious dragonfruit once…
