Mexico City Fruit Review #1

Found this at a produce market, no idea what it is. I know charamoya (sp?) exists here and is a common fruit, perhaps this is that?

Gumby for scale.

Maybe I’d recognize the name if I knew it but I’ve certainly never seen this fruit before. It’s quite heavy and the flesh indents like a half deflated football, I’m going to assume that means it’s ripe.

NOSE – Mild, slightly melony.

TASTE – Weeeeeeeird. Tastes of pumpkin, cantaloupe, carrot, sweet potato. The texture is similar to avocado but more mealy, less creamy. A rather decadent mouthfeel actually.

IS IT GOOD – Yup, it’s good. Will pick up more and learn what it is.
