New Thing #331: Eat a Granadilla

Scale_3

I found a bunch of Granadillas at our local grocery store last week and grabbed one. It’s definitely something I’ve never tried, or heard of before.

Turns out it’s sort of like a Passion Fruit, where you basically have a bunch of slimy tadpole like seeds surrounded by a gooey membrane. It sort of reminds me of how the seeds in grapes will often have that outer layer of guck on them. But here it’s a selling feature.

They taste pretty sweet, with just a lingering sourness to them. Of course all of this comes at a price, they’re a damn sight hard eat. Well, not so much hard as tedious. There’s got to be a couple hundred seeds to individually suck the fruit from and although I really started getting the hang of it after a half I was really done at that point.

In any case this is a pretty neat little fruit to try for novelty’s sake, but I can’t see a real reason to eat them on a regular basis.
