There’s a big difference between ripe passion fruit and the not-quite ripe variety. Which goes without saying. But with something like a banana you can muscle it out – peel back the greenish skin, chew a little harder, and it’s tolerable. With passion fruit, a nearly-ripe fruit is so puckeringly tart that it’s almost inedible. Which is a long-winded way of saying that the kids need to give passion fruit another chance. Because really, there isn’t a fruit on this planet that smells or tastes better.
ME: Guys, What’s this called?
LAUREN: A plum?
LAUREN: Passion fruit?
ME: How’d you guess?
LAUREN: You were talking about it before.
ME: Oh. Describe it then.
LAUREN: Hmmm. It looks light.
SAM: And heavy.
LAUREN: It looks light and heavy at the same time.
ME: What do you think it’s going to look like on the inside?
LAUREN: Yellow and peach.
ME: Can you shake it?
LAUREN: I feel a little shake in it.0 comments
