Odd Fruit of the Month

The other day I decided to try a fruit that is native to the eastern part of Spain. The locals call if cactus fruit, though if you google that name then you end up with a different fruit. So after a long online search I still have no idea as to what it is called in English. Luckily though, I took a photo!

As you can see in the picture it is a round orange fruit with a leafy stem on top. You’re supposed to cut it open and scoop out the insides. There were some large smooth seeds on the inside that you kind out just spit out. The texture inside was a kind of liquid but solid goo. I didn’t find it very sweet even though I heard that it normally is very sweet.

Overall verdict: I ate one and wasn’t motivated enough to eat the second one.  But one woman I spoke with (who convinced me to try it) told me that you either love it or hate it.
