I’ve become a bit obsessed with these fruits: mangosteen, rambutans, and salak. The salaks look distinctively like a pair of testicles that have just completed a one mile swim in Antarctica.
That’s not why I like them, though!
Okay—that is why I like them …
But not for eating. When I’m upset, I put them in my fist and crush them.
Et cetera …
What is your favourite tropical fruit that looks like genitalia?
