Unusual Fruit You’ve Never Heard Of

May 17th, 2011 | Fruit Maven

As summer is sneaking up on me, I’m starting to think about various fruit I would love to try. My fruit forays have slowed in the last year, but believe me, I still think about finding those elusive little gems that hide in the most unassuming spots. Here are a few that I’ve heard of but have never come across. I’d do a little happy dance (or three) if I could get my hands on some of these. This list isn’t even close to exhaustive, just a few that are swirling round in my brain in no particular order…

Relatively common but a variety I want:

Peacotum
Paw Paw
Mamey Sapote
Surinam Cherry

Fruit with an unusual color:

Blue Apricot
Blue Java Banana (Ice Cream Banana)
Pink Cherimoya
White Blueberry
Pink and Purple Finger Limes

Fruit with a cool name:

Bastard Cherry
Delicious Monsters
Congo Goobers
Lovi-lovi
Num-num
Umbrella Fruit
Doctor Hogg Apple

Exotic fruit:

Lilly Pilly
Camu-Camus
Cashew Apple
Biriba
Peanut Butter Fruit
Star Apple
Jaboticaba
Ice Cream Bean

And tons of berries (I’ve hardly tried any):
