After having brought these amazing looking fruits home, we turned to the first thing that anyone would when looking for information, google. After a search of a couple of minutes we were able to deduce that the orange-like fruit is known as a Sweet Granadilla(much like a Passion Fruit) while the tomatoe's distant cousin is rather a tamarillo or tree tomatoe.
After having sat in the fridge for a couple of days we finally decided to open up the sweet granadilla (prior to knowing it was a sweet fruit) and proceed to eat it. It was tough at first to cut open, but soon gave in the smooth blade of the knife, revealing a gooey green slimey clump of little seeds (we didn't have any immediate takers, surprising...). After having examined what was before us, I decided to take the plunge at give it a try. It first felt somewhat like jello, but tasted like a bit like a kiwi. The seeds within the gooey goodness were crunchy much like those found within a pomegranate. We passed the sweet granadilla around the table and scooped the crunchy mush out with a spoon until it was all gone. In the words of Maxwell House Coffee, it was good to the last "metaphorical" drop. An interesting experience to say the least.
