More Exotic Fruits

This batch was even more successful than the last. The snake fruit made us both think that we’d discovered the secret of the artificial fruit flavor that you often encounter in candies like jolly ranchers. The spiky one had a texture like pomegranate in that the seeds were small and edible within a luscious suspension of sweetness. It had a kind of banana flavor to the green goodness. The best by far though was the little round cherry tomato-like fruits in the light brown husks. They have this flavor that is simply like nothing you’ve ever tasted before. Very complex with changing taste over time from very sweet, to overtones of bitterness, to a savory aftertaste.
