Latin grenade (brought to you by C.)


Here's a little Columbian bombshell. They say that this is Shakira's favourite fruit. Called granadilla, this little number is hard on the outside and packs a punch on the inside. The contents of this tropical fruit is kind of like, I hate to say it, sweet phlegm with a tart undertone accompanied by the crunch of sunflower seeds. As the people at Buckley's Mixture might say: "Sounds awful, but it works". Seriously, this description doesn't do this unusual fruit justice, as it makes for an attractive, tasty (and expensive) snack that could best be likened to nature's jell-o.

Ok, I'm not a visual eater, but that looks nasty on the inside. How do you know when it's ripe?

I have NO idea how to know when it's ripe. I was just told to eat it and it was delicious! But yah, it does look creepy on the inside.

Is it just me or does the empty fruit look like a reproductive organ?!

Broccoli said...

Hmmm, which one? An innie, or an outtie?

EW.

Let's just say that in my university Botany class, we learned that fruit are the sex organs of a plant.
