  1. Hi there,
    I'm really enjoying your blog. I also have a fascination with trying new fruits. I have a youtube series where I review fruit ("weird fruit explorer" if you'd like to check it out) I hope you don't mind if I use your site as a resource, its very informative.


    1. Very cool to see another fruit fan! Your videos are super-helpful because I've often had a hard time describing the taste of little-known fruits (like nutmeg's aril, for instance). Thanks for these extra insights.

  2. very interesting and nice blog....

  3. nice blog and interesting since am having an orchard your blog helps me a lot. My custard apple trees are bearing fruit for the first time this year, how can I know the time to pick them?

  4. Hey Catherine - Excellent Blog very informative :)

  5. The recent drought in my part of Australia has saved a rotted wampee I was about to hack down. Not only has it recovered from rot but it is loaded with fruit for the first time in years. What a pleasure to then discover this entry on your blog about a fruit I thought I'd never taste again. Thank you, Catherine. Please keep blogging.

  6. Dear Ms. CR,
    Recently was in Jakarta, Indonesia & I happened to taste a fruit called "Snake Fruit...!!" It exactly resembles the hood of a snake & even the scales on the fruit are dark brown & rusty & has a shiny appearance..
    These scales when rubbed by hand on their opposite side hurts the skin, but the skin when carefully peeled has a dense white inside which has a good coconut like taste...!!
    Juz wanted to share with you about a fruit which I had never hitherto seen in India..!!
    Thanks & regards - krupa
