I would like to thank everyone for helping me identify my mystery fruit yesterday. Most of you were correct. It was passion fruit. And it turned out to be the fruit I really enjoyed in the Dominican. I remembered the smell of it, but not the name. Now I need to track down some other fruit to see if I can stump all of you. It might turn into a fun project and a way to learn about more fruit from all over the world. I will be restricted to what I can buy in London or photos I can take while traveling. I’ve seen too many episodes of Nothing to Declare so I won’t attempt smuggling any food into the country. By the way, if you haven’t seen the show and are traveling to Australia anytime soon, do not bring any food. If you do, declare it. Big fines or worse. Even the food they gave you on the plane. You have to declare that. Don’t get held up in customs–it isn’t worth it.

I knew it!
Super delicious! Lovely picture. 🙂
You’re telling me about all those undeclared food. Australia and New Zealand are very strict on food coming in. Nothing goes through because they are afraid it will contaminate their “clean” food
From what I’ve seen on the show, they don’t mess around. Trust me, I won’t be bringing any food when I visit.
You better! 🙂
Of course and delicious too no doubt!
I enjoyed it and imagined I was eating it on a tropical island.
You should definitely make this a thing 🙂 Guess the fruit (even though I’m really bad at it) might be fun 😀
I’ll do my best to stump you! I’m really bad at identifying most things, such as animals, birds, trees, and now fruit!
Hey, another mystery game. This will be fun :).
Now we’ll see if I can stump you. No cheating, Ms. Google
I’ll be keeping on eye on you missy!
Tee Hee 😃
And no whining about it!
Mhhhhhhh I love Passion Fruits 😀 But they are so expensive here – 99 Cent for one piece! Happy Weekend 😀
Really–this one was a gift. I hope you enjoy your weekend.
Customs officers scare me. Don’t know why, they just do.
Yeah, I’m always relieved when I get through without being hassled. I know it’s their job, but do they have to be so terrifying.
ooh I love passionfruit – I’m behind on blogs or I could have helped identify it – used to eat it almost daily, hm maybe I’ll go get some next time I’m at the market
One of my favorite fruits. I have passion fruit on my backyard. The flowers are very beautiful too. It’s a shame they only last for a day.
The inside looks like a fruit called markisa here in my country, but the skin colour is different
Glad you identified your mystery fruit!
one of my favorite fruits is a persimmon. But that might be an easy one to guess. 🙂
passion fruit? there is one that really looks alike here,…we called it DELIMA,..^^
I’ll have to keep an eye out for that one. thanks!
