Fun Fruits

In the article below, Alexandra Gekas profiles ten different fruits: rambutan, durian, African cucumber, ackee, Buddha’s hand, monstera deliciosa, chayote, cherimoya, salak, and dragon fruit.  My personal favorites are rambutan, salak, and dragon fruit. 🙂  I think Gekas uses the adjective “exotic” because these fruits are not common in the average American diet, which is probably part of the reason why they are pricey at most grocery stores in the U.S.  If you can spare a bit of extra money, I think it might be fun to splurge a bit and try something out of the ordinary.  You might be able to find good deals on fruit and lots of other healthy items at local ethnic markets, too.  Check online for the shop locations nearest you or ask around for recommendations.
