Some of you may have figured this out about me already by the comments I leave on your blogs. I am not a master chef. Boiling an egg—don’t ask. Now, this doesn’t mean that I don’t love food. I do. I really do. But most of the time, I really don’t know what I’m ordering at restaurants, especially in different countries
Since moving to London, I’ve been trying to sample new types of foods here. I still haven’t been adventurous enough to attempt haggis yet. That one may be further down the road.
Last night the better half brought home what I believe is a piece of fruit, but I don’t know for sure. At first I thought it might be a fig, but then I googled images of figs and it doesn’t look exactly like them. There are similarities, but not a perfect match. You can’t tell by the photo, but when I pick it up, it feels extremely light. No density whatsoever. The smell reminds me of a fruit that I enjoyed in the Dominican, but surprise, surprise, I can’t remember the name. I promised I wouldn’t cut it open until tonight, so I can’t show you the inside of it yet. Can you guys help me out?
Isn’t it a passionfruit?
I’m hoping so. I loved it before and it smells like it, but I’m waiting to open it.
Have you sliced it open yet?
Not yet. A few more hours and I hope all will be revealed.
passion fruit – yummie yum yums
also known as granadilla
Looks like a granadilla, one of my favourites
It smells good!

Seems to be the popular answer!
these other people do not know what they are talking about–be very careful when you open it tonight, because a tiny little animal known as a molinia will pop out — it looks like a miniature koala beer, but tweets like a bird–you will need to find a cage for it, and feed it sunflower seeds
I can picture Atticus hunting my new baby…I’m on the sunflower seeds!
At first glance I’ll say grenadilla or passion fruit. Not sure of the size though, but I’m relatively sure from your description.
We’ll find out tonight, hopefully, when I open it.
It’s a gulupa passion fruit, when I visit my inlaws in Colombia they serve it whizzed up with milk to make a delicious smoothie! I think they strain it before serving to remove the “lumps” of fruit.
I should get more to make a smoothie. thanks for the idea!
I don’t have any idea 🙂
You aren’t alone.
Oooh, does this mean you are going to get all passionate now?? The better half may need to watch out!! LOL
I’ll never tell–I’m blushing
Looks a bit like a Mangosteen!
I looked that up…never knew there were tropical evergreen trees. Neat!
I had no clue but judging from the other comments it seems that it is either passion fruit or some kind of egg……loved that answer and will happily send you a stock of sunflower seeds if it is indeed the latter!
How cool would that be!
My first thought was a pomegranate … but then your pic make me think it is much smaller … so, no clue … but look forward to hearing about your adventure!
I’ll do my best to give an update!
If its about the size of a plum its a passion fruit, but if so it doesn’t look quite ripe enough to me -but as you can smell it then it must be, enjoy!
It tasted good–but I’ve never been able to judge if some fruit are actually ripe. Melons for example.
Well, I’m sure I don’t know. It actually looks like a plum – which would be me first thought but not after you mentioned the lightness. I guess it must be a passion fruit going off other answers. Waiting to hear.
My first thought was that it was a plum until I held it.
It looks like a passionfruit from here. Does it have delicious floral goo in the middle? Yuumm. make passionfruit butter!!
Maybe next time. I ate it right away–ooops
No help here. 🙂
It looks like a passionfruit to me, but I would’ve thought that one looking that ripe would not be particularly light as it should be packed full of passionfruit goodness inside. Do let us know!
It was and really tasty! Just like I remembered.
It’s a pomegranate.
I do love pomegranates. When I lived in California there was a tree in our neighborhood. Us kids we would grab one and snack on it during our walk to school.
This is a granadilla for sure….. pomegranite has a different bottom?? 🙂 **
passion fruit? never heard of it before. it looks like plum
Well, my first thought is a passionfruit, which also turns out to be a popular answer here.
