>There was lots of food at the fair, and we saw many mysterious fruit.
The first one, upon first glance I thought she was selling bags of purple potatoes.
She let us try one
It had little flat seeds and was nice tasting.
And what is this?? Mango slices in a bag. With sour orange, salt and chili sauce. They gave me a sour mango slice to try, and had a good laugh at my facial expression. Was it ever sour!
Perhaps he is carrying some of the very same fruit
This is the sour orange. It’s used as we use a lemon.
Another mystery fruit – we bought a crate of these for $3. It was just too pretty and good smelling. The guy indicated that we should just open them and eat them.
I took it back to my room. They sat in the fridge a few days and perfumed the cabin.
I removed them from the box to discover that they had cashew-like tops on them. Are these cashews?
I cracked one open. It smelled so good! I tasted it. Blech! So Bitter my tongue went numb.
I did see a fruit I recognized at the fair, and I bought a piece and ate it right there.
