Do you have what it takes to snatch the 'Food Meister' title? (Warning: this game may cause a period of procrastination!)
Found this one today in the supermarket - any ideas? ;-)
That one had less entertainment value than I expected ;-)
It is known by a few names, but over here (NZ) is sold as the kiwano - no great surprise there!
Is it a fruit? What does a whole one look like?
It tasted slightly bitter, and was like eating a cross between a cucumber and a passionfruit. I didn't finish it :-)
Ahhh, it's one of my favorite fruit - annona squamosa
, commonly known as the custard apple.
"The most delicious fruit known to man", according to Mark Twain.
I always thought that custard apples (known as Atis
) in the Philippines which have been introduced by the Spaniards from South America taste 10x better than the ones grown here in Australia because they are organic and haven't been sprayed with hormones and pesticides.
Just a word of caution for those who want to try this fruit - do not eat or swallow the seeds ! ... they are poisonous !
I haven't seen this type of fruit before. I thought it was some sort of sea creature at first 😱
Can't see much of a difference with this Warty Sea Cucumber

Thanks! - that's what I was aiming for with the first photo, to try and put people off track - except it didn't quite work with Jason ;-)
Seeing as you guessed the last one Jo, do you want to pick up the baton and find one to keep the quiz going?
@Jo , No worries 😉
... just having some glitch uploading the photo for the quiz.
Since we're going for strange spiny look, I'll throw in this one.
Hint: It is not a sea urchin 😄
Which means I get to go again right;-)
I'm gonna have to think about this...cos you guys are getting stumped!
the most mysterious yet ;-)
Hrm... I'd seen the first, could recognize the second, and the knew the third but this last one....
Ah.... if we're sticking with the fruit/veg category that I'm guessing the dried inside of a gourd? Seriously not a clue, but this game just shot all chances I had of not
being distracted today. Thanks guys 😉
is this one birds nest? As in what goes in the soup?
Not a fruit or veg but this is the only think I could think of!
Bird's nest soup
"A kilogram of white nest can cost up to $2,000 USD, and a kilogram of "red blood" nest can cost up to $10,000 USD"
I saw some of the nests in Sarawak, Malaysia, but was never able to try any "Caviar of the East" on a backpacker budget.
"It has been estimated that the products now account for 0.5%!o(MISSING)f the Indonesian GDP, equivalent to about a quarter of the country's fishing industry".
Whoop whoop good guess!!
ok what about this one... no peeking at the blog!
Okay, I immediately peeked...so I'm out;-)
