Taiwan: New Fruits

Wax apples. These were my favorite fruit by far. I’ve never seen them at the grocery stores here, but I wish we had these. They have a waxy skin, as the name alludes to, but a super crisp, light, and sweet taste. The whole thing can be eaten, unless you get a slightly more matured one that has a seed in it.

Sugar Apples. I know, another apple? no, this was far from a normal apple. This knobby, green fruit was very unique, and kind of weird to eat. You can tell by its unique shape that it doesn’t look quite appetizing, but when you break open the apple, you find that there is a white, very soft flesh that has black seeds the size of olive pits in each of the knobs.

The idea was that you break off a little section and you eat bit the whole white part and spit out the seed. They are called sugar apples for a reason, they are sweet. Very sweet. I actually got sugared-out while eating one, but they are quite tasty!
