There are a lot of the same fruits here in Costa Rica , that we have in the United States. Peaches, Lemons, Limes, Melons, Pineapple ( called Pin-ya here) but there also some crazy looking fruits and vegetables. The fruit in the picture is called a Mamon Chino. I think it looks like a sea creature.
Inside, the fruit is kind of like a honeydew melon. It feels like it on my toungue, and tastes kind of like it too. But instead of having seeds in the middle like a melon, there is a pit. Kind of like a peach or a nectarine. They are about the same size too. The pit looks kind of like a nut, but if you eat it it is toxic. My mom says peach and nectarine pits are toxic too. The word for poison in spanish is Veneno.
We have lots of other fruits on the farm too.
I love goldenberries. I even put them in my jello for dessert sometimes.
I think passion fruit look disgusting inside. I cant make myself eat the slimy seeds.
My mom says they're delicious but I'm not interested. There are lots of other fruits on the farm, like peaches, avocados and blackberries (Mora) and some I just don't know what they are called yet. But I will find out and show you.
On a different day I will tell you about my vegetable garden.
