This afternoon we went to the Farmer's market and bought different types of tropical fruits found on the island. It was really fun opening up and tasting each fruit.
Apple Bananas are a type of bananas that are short and fat. They taste sour and sweet and it is important to wait until the peel of this banana is near black before eating to get the full flavor.
At the market we saw different types of avocados. Some are very large and oval shape and some are round and small. I don't like avocados but my dad said that some have a more buttery taste than others.
Ketembilla grows on a small spiny tree and has these small purple fruit that look like large purple grapes. They taste sweet inside but the skin is very sour and there is a small pit inside.
The passion fruit is sour and slimy inside and has crunchy seeds that you can eat. You only eat the inside. It has a really strong and sweet smell. I like the smell but not the taste. I especially don't like how it feels in my mouth.
The papaya tastes like an overripe melon. Just like a melon you scoop out the seeds before eating.
The star fruit is the prettiest and I think the tastiest of the tropical fruits I tried. It is sweet and juicy and tastes a little bit like an apple pear.
The Rambutan is the hairiest fruit ever. Once you peel the skin, there is a oval shaped fruit that tastes like the inside of a grape. There is a big pit inside.
We bought this fruit, but we forgot to ask what it was. It has a very bland taste. Its texture (what it feels like in your mouth) is like a ripe pear. Does anyone know what it is?
