Fruits and Veggies Monday - Mini Green Apple? Wait... it looks different

You will never be un-surprised with nature, and the wide variety of the fruits it can offer to you.


I was very surprised when my friend and colleague mentioned about this particular fruit, and I have never seen it before. They were mentioning that they looked like mini granny smiths (green apples) but I didn't manage to find the exact name until I saw the fruit and I tried to Google more information to it.


When I first got the fruit from my friend it does give false impression of a tiny green apples. They don't have fragrant smell, and you pretty much would wonder do they even taste anything at all.


But surprisingly, when I start cutting through, it has a feel between an apple when it is still green, but more dried pear when it starts to turn Yellow (riper)


As you can see, it only has one pulp, and there it looks a lot like a plum.

That boils down to a combination, apple-like, pear-like and plum.

Until I finally found the actual name of the fruit.



So now, the mystery is solved for me.

And my personal experience is they are actually sweeter when they are greener, and the sweetness actually reduces when it ripen too much into yellow and white-ish.

Have you seen / tried this fruit before?

do share your thoughts!

Until then

Thank You for Your Time

Oh how fun! I always love seeing new things like this. I can't say I've ever seen those here, but would love to try some if I ever do. So many yummy fruits in the world, I would never turn any away to get a taste!

Oh apparently this fruit is found mostly from the deep south east Asian forests according to my friend and colleagues.
We don't get to see this often but even when we do they are expensive, sold by the aboriginals, which is a good thing for their source of income.

There's however one at the institute of cultural Malaysia if not mistaken. Free for picking for those who can recognise it. Haha.
