Adventures in Colombian Fruit: Part 3

This is Lulo

Immediately, it smells wonderful, probably better than it tastes.
Its flavor is a mix between a slightly bitter kiwi and a tomato. Which makes sense because while it looks like an orange tomato, its rough outer skin feels like a kiwi without the hair.

Though it was refreshing it was a bit difficult to enjoy this fruit fresh. I thought it would taste great de-skinned and put on a sandwich. When this idea was mentioned to the Colombian house keeper she thought we were crazy and told us there is only one use for Lulo.

Turn it into juice.

We should have known.
