As usual, I want to share with you a new fruit. We tried these last year but I never posted about them. It’s the time of the year again where these “fruit” have made an appearance. You can buy a liter of them for about a quarter. Then, they are so plentiful, the guy we bought them from decided to give us an extra liter for free. You basically just bite into them, spit out the shell, then suck out the fruit. Inside the fruit are a few large seeds that you suck around and spit out. They are really sweet and juicy. I asked a Tanzanian what they are called but they are only referred to as “fruit”. Swahili is a language that is not nearly as descriptive as English. I am sure these fruit actually do have a name, it’s just not used by everyone.
