Taste 1,000 Fruits, No. 74-88
I just added a bunch of fruits to my Taste 1,000 Fruits Project. A few of my favorites:
I finally realize where artificial grape flavoring came from. Concord grapes taste like the fruit version of grape candy. They’re small, and have an exquisite texture. The outside peel isn’t solidly attached to the fruit inside, so you can squeeze one between your teeth and the interior fruit pops out. That’s how I ate the whole bunch.
Yali Asian Pears
Crisp and light, the flavor is almost like an essence, the way cucumber can scent water.
Sweet and juicy — if you’ve had Muscat wine, you know what these taste like.
I didn’t get a great photo, but this is one of my favorite new fruits. Like a cross between a banana and a pineapple with texture a little like a peach. The flesh inside is white with large brown seeds in it. If you see one anywhere, try it.
