Fruit and veg not for the feint of heart

Posted on: May 14, 2009

There’s some weird ass fruit and veg in this world. This page has a bunch of pictures of some things I don’t think I’d even attempt to put near my mouth. Some of my “favorites”:

Dragon Fruit or Pitaya

It’s not the odd scaly skin that gets me. I can deal with that. No, it’s the fact that the inside looks like a giant loogy. That and the cooked picture reminds me of a bloody human organ. I think I’ll pass.

Mangosteen, actually the Purple Mangosteen

Now, these don’t gross me out. Actually, they make me very curious. I’d actually give these a whirl. They make me think of giant acorns that you can cut open and find what looks like a white orange inside to eat. And the fact that it’s an evergreen tree is fascinating.

Durian

It comes from a beautiful tree. However, it’s like a giant deformed pineapple with the hive mind inside. And apparently smells so bad it’s specifically banned in some hotels and public transit in some countries. No thank you.

And last, but not least, Romanesco broccoli

How can you not love a vegetable that looks like a pale green fractal seashell. And if it tastes anything like broccoli or cauliflower it’s ok in my book.
