Bananas, oranges, and kiwis are all too common year round now.
However, there are lots of other fruits in the world, and Bright Side collected 20 of the hardest to find. Who knows, though? Perhaps they’ll also be on every table one day soon.
This fruit resembles ice cream more than anything else. It melts in your mouth like a tender cream and is known for its fever-reducing and dysentery healing properties. The only drawback is that its seeds are poisonous.
Durian. A very controversial fruit. Some love it 😍, some hate it 😡It smells like hell, but I couldn't resist trying it! The taste is strange and so is the texture. Not my favorite fruit but not too bad either. During a later trip to Malaysia I had the opportunity of trying durian ice-cream 🍦🍦🍦. It's fantastic….and it doesn't smell !!! 😜😜😜. #durian #durians #kuala #terengganu #kualaterengganu #malaysia #malaysiatrulyasia #asia #southeastasia #eastmalaysia #fruit #badsmell #fruitstall #streetfruitstall
The biggest peculiarity of durian is its awful smell combined with delicious taste. The fruit contains organic sulfur which explains its odor, but it tastes like nuts and cheese with tints of different fruits. Another thing is that it causes a sharp increase in blood pressure.
Jackfruit trees have large fruit whose weight is up to 70 pounds and length is 3 feet. Their flavor is a mix of banana, pineapple, and mango, while jackfruit seeds taste like chocolate when fried.
Jabuticaba’s taste resembles grapes, and it’s used to make jelly, wine, and liqueurs. Its dried skin is a popular treatment for asthma in Brazil.
A handful of miracle berries! Synsepalum dulcificum. These fruits have the extraordinary power to make everything sour taste sweet. Eat one berry, and limes taste like candy! I'm trialing some different methods of exracting miraculin, the active compound that produces this affect. Does anyone know any recipes for tinctures or extractions that achieve this? I'm trying full and partial fruit extractions in 30% ABV. . . . . . #miraclefruit #miracleberry #Synsepalum dulcificum #tropicalfruit #sweet #miraculousberry #amazing #farmlife #organicgardening #organic #extract #foodismedicine #herbalism #plantmedicines #fruit #healthy #healthyfood #fit #permaculture #agroecology #harvest #tincture #alchemy #foodforest #permacultura #sustainable #berry #tasty #earth
These berries have seemingly magical properties: eat one of them, and whatever you eat in the following hour — anything — will seem sweet to you.
These sweet fruits taste like raspberry or mango and contain much more potassium, beta-carotene, and vitamin C than ordinary bananas.
It’s also known as horned melon and African horned cucumber or melon. The ripe fruit tastes like a mix of cucumber, kiwi fruit, and banana.
Tamarillo is a relative of the tomato, eggplant, and chili pepper. It resembles sour-sweet tomatoes and passion fruit. It’s suitable both for dessert and garnish.
This fruit is valued for its fragrant skin with an aroma of violets. There’s precious little pulp in it, so it’s barely edible and tastes like lemon skin. Yellow “fingers” are often used in cooking fish and salads.
Due to its reddish-brown scaly skin, it’s sometimes called snake fruit. Salak is fragrant yet unusual to taste: it resembles pineapple and banana with nuts. Also, the skin can prickle you, so peel it carefully.
Black sapote is, perhaps, the only fruit that’s adopted this color to indicate ripeness. It resembles chocolate pudding in everything from taste to texture, and it’s much more healthy.
It looks cute — like a tiny watermelon. Despite being a fruit, melothria isn’t sweet; it’s more like a cucumber with a hint of lemon juice.
Another fruit that’s ripe when it’s black, though in this case it’s only about the skin. Biriba tastes like lemon pie.
This fruit can be eaten at different stages. When it’s ripe, it’s sweet and creamy, while an underripe one resembles freshly baked bread.
