Forgotten Fruit

Upon arriving on Molokai we stopped in town for snacks to have during our stay. We bought this strange fruit on impulse at a natural food store. 
Here's what it looks like when you cut it in half. 
Inside the fruit is super sweet like the softest pear sprinkled with brown sugar.
 But the seeds were extremely hard. 
No clue what it was called.

Good Morning Jorge,

Speaking of Islands I wanted to show you some pics of a Greek island where I would love to get LOST!

Greetings from a fun of yours :-) in Athens - Greece.

Forgot to mention that the pics are in my blog. But I guess this direction is only applicable to blonds hehe! :-)

I don't think I've said before, I'm liking the mutton chops. Very 19th century.

It looks like a Tim Horton's Tim Bit from the outside. They also are super sweet like the softest pear sprinkled with brown sugar and the upside is that they are cakey-yumminess with no annoying seeds in interfere with the diner's enjoyment.

Did you celebrate Earth Hour and turn your lights out?

More power to you eating the unknown fruit! I'm not that big of a risk taker, don't even like sampling stuff at the grocery store.

In Hawai'i we call them Chico. That's the other name for Zapote.

Love your blog,


Jenny Santiago said...

Baymina said...

Hey Jorge.. I know you posted this blog a long time ago, but i just found your blogs today, so now i'm reading and reading.. If you don't know yet, the fruit you are eating here is a Fig.. Or, it looks a lot like a fig and a fig has got those really hard seeds.. Btw. If you can't keep bugs and wild animals away from your garden, try to plant som garlic. I've done it in our garden, and most of the plants are hole now, no more snails and bugs.. :)

Hope you get this!
