  1. Hi there,
    I'm really enjoying your blog. I also have a fascination with trying new fruits. I have a youtube series where I review fruit ("weird fruit explorer" if you'd like to check it out) I hope you don't mind if I use your site as a resource, its very informative.

    1. Very cool to see another fruit fan! Your videos are super-helpful because I've often had a hard time describing the taste of little-known fruits (like nutmeg's aril, for instance). Thanks for these extra insights.

  5. The recent drought in my part of Australia has saved a rotted wampee I was about to hack down. Not only has it recovered from rot but it is loaded with fruit for the first time in years. What a pleasure to then discover this entry on your blog about a fruit I thought I'd never taste again. Thank you, Catherine. Please keep blogging.

  6. Dear Ms. CR,
    Recently was in Jakarta, Indonesia & I happened to taste a fruit called "Snake Fruit...!!" It exactly resembles the hood of a snake & even the scales on the fruit are dark brown & rusty & has a shiny appearance..
    These scales when rubbed by hand on their opposite side hurts the skin, but the skin when carefully peeled has a dense white inside which has a good coconut like taste...!!
    Juz wanted to share with you about a fruit which I had never hitherto seen in India..!!
    Thanks & regards - krupa

  8. Hi Catherine!
    what a nice blog!
    I'm an italian guy, i'm vegan since I was 15 (now I'm 34), and I too write articles about fruits and vegetables! This year I started to study and write about tropical fruit... so I enjoy very much your work!
    This August I'll be in Tamil Nadu for the third time, and my hope is to find and taste and describe all fruits as possible! Are you interested in a collaboration? You can contact me here: visvavarna@tiscali.it.
    Best regards!

  14. I am from the south west on India, an area near the hills but not hilly and in monsoon climate (Middle Kerala). I have a Pulasan plant in my garden. Its 3 years now. Last year it fruited heavily, but all with no pulp or stone but an empty canal inside which might be meant for pulp and stone. Could any tell me what I can do to make it fruit normally ?

  15. Fruits are the best gift of nature. These are the tings that are healthy as well as tasty. You must have fruits in your regular diet to maintain good health. This will simply make you healthier and fit. You would also love to know about noni fruit juices or extracts to make you more healthier and fit.
