The Top Five Weirdest Fruits You Probably Haven’t Heard Of
Going to the grocery store can be a healthy experience for some. The first stop in a grocery store is almost always the fruits and vegetables because, in most stores, it’s the section you walk into. Although there are a scary amount of people who walk past the healthy foods and directly into the processed foods and cake, that’s neither here nor there. While grocery stores are packed with common fruit such as apples, oranges, and strawberries, here are five weird fruits you’ve probably never seen.
Passion fruit looks like you opened a regular fruit and found sacks of nestling insects. But this weird fruit has a sweet-tart flavor reminiscent of pineapple or guava and is a great flavor for teas, smoothies, or iced drinks.
Much like the passion fruit, opening mangosteen gives you the surprising sight of something weird. Though, much like the passion fruit again, mangosteen is often found as a flavor in drinks than it is a fruit that is eaten on its own since it has a very sweet, juicy, and tangy flavor.
Dragon fruit (Pitaya)
Dragon fruit is what you would assume dragon eggs would look like if dragons actually existed. Dragon fruits taste like a mix of a kiwi and a pear. It’s not easy to find it in grocery stores, so it’s best to look around in specialty stores to get the authentic taste.
The smell of durian is so rancid its been banned from public transportation. However, if you can get over the fact that this fruit smells like the gym shower, then you’ll be rewarded with a sweet and creamy flavor.
