Even if you consider yourself a food connoisseur, chances are there’s still plenty of diverse international produce out there for you to try.
This list of 10 rare fruits is a perfect example. While fruits like watermelon, apples, and bananas can be found all over the world, here’s a list of some tasty snacks that may be too locally concentrated to have made it into your supermarket.
Want to give some of these a try?
There’s the salak fruit, native to southeast Asia, which is mostly sweet like a pineapple-esque banana.
There’s also the Buddha’s hand, or fingered citron, that boasts the distinction of being a sweet citrus fruit you can gobble down in candied strips or cubes. There’s also the wood apple, which tastes almost like a raisin pudding and boasts dozens of health benefits.
You can find both of those in China and other Asian nations, while the wood apple has migrated to the Dominican Republic as well—but neither are particularly common elsewhere.
The Chinese gac fruit is chock-full of lycopene, while the Brazilian jabuticaba berries—perfect for making jellies or wine—helps with asthma, hair loss, and other ailments.
The list goes on to introduce adventurous eaters to the monkey fruit and more, but most interesting of all may be the ackee fruit, native to Jamaica and reminiscent of cheddar cheese; if you’re looking for some adventure in your diet and you happen upon it someplace, give that one a try!
