EXTREMELY STRANGE FRUITS
Added on: 26th Oct 2016
Originally from Mexico, this well-loved fruit grows on a
cactus and only blossoms at night. It is commonly
known as dragon fruit.
With an exceptionally sweet and malty flavour, these
Caribbean trees die extremely fast if the temperature
drops below freezing.
Another Caribbean fruit, this one is popular for its use in
milkshakes, smoothies and ice cream. It is particularly
popular in Central America, South Florida and the Caribbean.
Although it looks like an orange, its actually much hardier.
These citrus fruits can withstand temperatures as low
as -10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit).
Cultivated throughout the Amazon Basin, this fruit is known
for its unique aroma which is said to be a blend of chocolate
and pineapple. Its taste, however, is more like pear with
a bit of banana.
Not all fruits are sweet. This one is grown throughout Asia,
Africa, and the Caribbean for its extremely bitter taste!
Also known as starfruit due to their shape after cutting,
carambolas are said to taste like a mix of apple,
pear, grape, and citrus.
In spite of the fact that it is known for its incredibly
pleasing taste, this fruit smells awful. In fact, it smells
so bad that in many Asian establishments (and
public transport) it is banned.
