Exotic fruits

Traveling abroad, especially in warm countries, a Russian tourist is faced with completely unknown fruits that have never been seen before. I also often do not even believe my eyes, what natural wonders can be found on fruit stalls. And so, so that next time I wouldn’t stick my eyes out of surprise at the sight of another amazing fruit, I decided to make a list for myself of what you can buy and try in the “foreign land”.

But he didn’t even suspect how much he would have to print! It turns out that there are so many exotic fruits on our wonderful planet that, most likely, few can taste them all in their lifetime. So, now on my list of 85 exotic fruits, and this is not just a photo with the names, but a description and interesting information. I definitely plan to supplement it periodically, so if you want to know about all the fruits, drop by here from time to time!

In addition to the name and common synonyms, for each fruit there is also a description of its appearance, a photograph and, if possible, taste qualities are characterized in comparison with the tastes known to most people. Since I tried (as it turned out) only a small part, I will talk about the taste of many exotic fruits based on the reviews of the lucky ones who really ate them, and in many cases I had to look for information on the bourgeois Internet.

I immediately warn the connoisseurs of botany that in the article the concepts are given at the everyday, understandable level. That is, one should not be indignant that in science the concept of “fruit” is absent, but there is only the general term “fruit”. Here I will call “fruits” sweets that grow on trees, on bushes or on vines, usually sweet or sweet and sour, which can be bitten several times before it is finally eaten. A “berry” we will consider small fruits that can be combined for one bite or even eat a handful and do not need to peel.

By the way, the article is not only tropical fruits, because the representative of temperate latitudes can easily turn out to be exotic.
