So exotic...
This takes my mind back to my first visit to Russia, in 1990. We stayed with a couple who had a little boy, Sasha. It was the time of the food shortages, empty shops, queues for everything. We used to travel over with bags full of packets and tins, at least the old Aeroflt Ilyushin aircraft had masses of luggage space!
One day we saw a stall selling bananas, Sasha had never tasted them, I bought him two for the cost of 25p. I remember that I paid the same price that day for a pair of amber earrings. It was a totally crazy time.

it certainly was.. a nationwide and fast lane transition from planned to market economy.. it was like having a major earthquake that shook the entire country from floor to ceiling...

lovely closeup......in Malaysia, the species found have a hairy prickly covering (& can cause skin rash & itch when they get into the skin pores)...... but it is sweet & wonderful as a dried fruit sun dried. Smile

I particularly like the way the one on the right seems grounded, whilst the one on the left almost appears to be hovering in space.
Best made into spicy pudding cake and served with crime fraiche and strong coffee😊

When ripe it is so soft and sweet, but when not mellowed well, it tastes pungent. The colour may deceive, when buying it must be as soft as easily smashed. It grows in Turkey and costs less than a pound a kilo. My wife likes it.
