These are some of the tastiest and most exotic fruits. It is not a ordinary everyday fruit, except if you are living in these parts of the world. If you haven’t try any of these I am sure it will be something completely different to the things you are used to. Not all will be your cup of tea, but give them a chance. Lychee was something I haven’t enjoyed the taste, but you might like it.
1. Dragon Fruit
Native to Mexico and Central and South America.
Taste: This amazing fruit can be described as a cross between a strawberry and a pear. Its delicious red berry flavor can be enjoyed all by itself, infused with vodka or on top of any luscious dessert. But crave it you will!
2. Kiwano Melon
Native to Kalahari Desert, Africa
Taste: Despite its intimidating looks, this funky little melon tastes like a mix of bananas, limes, and cucumbers. And, like a banana, it does not have to be refrigerated.
Native to Malay Archipelago, Southeast Asia
Taste: Rambutan is Lightly sweet and mild in flavor, similar taste as the lychee!
Native to southwestern India, Bangladesh, Philippines and Sri Lanka
Taste: Like a cross between a pineapple and banana.
Native to southern China, found in India, Taiwan
Taste: Lychee fruit is sweet, with a taste somewhat like the combination of a pear and a grape.
6. Star Fruit
Native to Indonesia, India and Sri Lanka
Taste: Star fruit tastes like a combination of plums, pineapple and lemons. The fruit is not too sweet, and is a wonderful alternative for most of our common Winter fruits.
Native to the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas.
Taste: Like a tropical fruit explosion in your mouth.
Native to China
Taste: Kumquats have a very distinctive taste. The skin, which can be eaten, is sweet, while the flesh inside is sour.
