What can I say about this fruit? It was practically a religious experience. It was really that delicious. Originally from the Moluccas of Indonesia, it’s now grown in South America. I wish I’d taken a picture of the inside of the fruit – it was somewhat shocking to open it up. For some reason I expected it to look like passion fruit, but in actuality it looked more like orange segments covered in fluffy white mold. It was so horrifying I almost didn’t taste it, but I’m glad I did. Because it was insanely delicious. A little like banana, without the smushiness. If that’s a word, which spell check tells me it’s not.
ME: What is this?
ME: What do you think it looks like?
ME: A mangosteen?
LAUREN: Well the top looks like a flower.
EMMA: A fowers. (flowers)
LAUREN: And the bottom really looks like a flower.
ME: It does, because it came out of a flower. Flowers are the beginning of all fruit.
SAM: This looks like a fire ball.
ME: Is it hot?
LAUREN: Well, you can always imagine with your mind that there’s a big tractor and it has a line, and there’s a fruit on the bottom that’s a bomb.
ME: If you shake it does it make a sound?
ME: Lauren let Emma shake it. Emma, what do you say?
EMMA: Tank goo.
ME: What is the sound?
LAUREN: The sound is like….
SAM: Mermaids!9 comments
