10 Weird Fruit You Might Not Have Heard Of
I've always been fascinated by the bizarre things mother-nature and evolution have managed to come up with. From strange animals to amazingly weird plant-life, nature has it all. In fact, even in the tamer world of fruit, there are apparently some bizarre options available. Since I've only really been exposed to the basics like bananas, grapes, and the like, I thought I'd delve a little deeper and bring back a top ten list of the weirdest fruits mother-nature has to offer.
Buddha's hand is the strangest of all fruits. Though it is a citrus fruits, people don't consume it as a fruit due to its awful appearance (imagine bizarre yellow fingers coming out a fruit). This is why it is mostly used as an embellishment in rooms to perfume them as it gives out an awesome citrus scent.
Kiwano or horned melon/cucumber is a hybrid of different fruits. It contains a hint of lime, cucumber and banana. Not only is this fruit interesting in its appearance, its taste is also unique. Kiwano's peel is a combination of yellow and orange and its' shape is oval, just like a kiwi.
