Left is a Granadilla, a product from Colombia and on the right is a Persimmon.
I chose these fruits because:
- Their names were interesting to me and,
- When looking them up I was intrigued by pictures and how the flavour of them were discribed.
These are also reffered to as passion fruits when I was looking them up.
This tasted very bitter but also sweet and tangy. The seeds are edible and so is the membrane around them, much like pomergrante and passion fruit. The smell of it, smell much of grapefruit, like that citrusy smell. and the texture of the outside was firm, hard shell, a soft flesh and a slime like consistency of the seeds.
This fruit out of the 2 was not my favourite, I found it a little weird to be eating a soft, gooey membrane and then crunch into a hard, tarte seed. I also found it a bit bitter.
This fruit I actually really liked.
The smell is very light and mild. The taste was sweet, almost candy like and the texture was soft enough to bite through but not too soft that its mushy in a way. Out of the 2 I really enjoyed this one and would re-buy it!
I made my whole family try both of them and this is what they said:
Mom- “ew nope… i don’t like it” (She didn’t even try it… just from the look of it she didn’t want it)
Dad- “Oh okay… its like passion fruit!” (My dad is the more adventurous out of my parents)
Brother- “uhhh… its okay….” (He had the smallest bite if it ever)
Sister- “ew no that looks gross”
Mom- “oh okay this is good! it’s sweet!”
Dad- “Its alright… its not that sweet..” (I told him it was kind of like a cotton candy sweetness from it, I guess we have different sweet tastebuds)
Brother- “its good…” ( He again took the smallest bite out of it…)
Sister- she ate like 4 slices of this, so I guess she liked it
I really enjoyed this and thought it was fun to try new things! I would definately do it again with different types of food, like cuturally different cusines!
