Anona madura -what’s that?
Travelling is not just about seeing new places and meeting new people. It’s also about experiencing new tastes and aromas, checking out the latest food trends…
Local markets are perfect for such things. We have one in our street. And it’s the place where I first met Anona Madura. It’s one of those practically unknown fruit. I was a bit shy to ask about it so I fist took a photo, then I tried to touch it and a few days later, I finally plucked up the courage to buy one.
So, I started my day with Anona Madura. It’s always nice to start a day with something new. But you know, I had to ask the lady at the market how to eat the fruit. I didn’t even know how to choose one – should it be hard or soft, is the colour right… It turned out to be simple. You have to choose the one that is not too hard, then peel it and cut it into pieces and you take out the black stones inside. Indeed, they are quite hard.
That’s exactly what I did. And of course, I had taken a few pics for you before I actually tasted it. I didn’t have a clue what to expect. Ok, it’s not the best thing I’ve ever had. It’s quite soft and I would say that it tastes a bit like pineapple with a hint of banana. The inside is quite tasty but the outer part is quite bitter.
But then again, you should try it for yourself to decide…
