Just a random post about some of the more unusual fruits I've been seeing around. Are any of them new to you?
These prickly pear cactus fruit were 3 for 99 cents at Super-A. They reminded me of dragonfruit, afterall they're both cactus fruit. Light and refreshing for the summer. I just don't like the seeds.
And from my usual grocery shopping at the San Gabriel Superstore, golden kiwi from New Zealand. These were 79 cents each. But they were larger than green kiwi. Not quite golden though, more like a yellow-green. The taste was still kiwi-ish, but also apple-pearish too?
Taiwanese white melon. This one cost me 93 cents. I first tried them in Vietnam two years ago. All this time I thought they were just stunted honeydew. That's what they tasted like.
And look at this beautiful yellow watermelon. Have you seen the like? 59 cents a pound.
The taste is much lighter than red watermelon, not nearly as sweet either. But very fun to eat for the novelty factor.
