March 24th, Day 313: Prunus Vachuschtii

Fruit Info: Today’s fruit is a rather interesting one. I’d give you it’s common name but it’s not an English name. So the best you can get is the romanized version of “alucha”. It is native to the Caucasus region of the world where it is eaten raw and used to make tkemali (a tart sauce used for meat dishes).

March 25th, Day 314: Italian Plum

Fruit Info: Prunus cocomilias is the scientific name for today’s fruit, which is more commonly called the Italian plum. What makes it so Italian though? Glad you asked. It’s native to southern Italy along with a bunch of other countries that are distinctly not Italy.

March 27th, Day 316: Wax Gourd

Fruit Info: While botanically a fruit, the lovely Ash Gourd is culinarily used as a vegetable. I’m not entirely sure why but I assume it comes down to flavoring.
That being said some of the ways the winter gourd is prepared to eat are interesting. In China it is cooked along with pork or pork/beef bones to make winter gourd soup. It also candied for special occasion snacks. In Vietnam it is also used to create soup. In the Philippines people have used it to make pastry filling. And lastly in India the tallow gourd is prepared in a wide variety of ways. As such I don’t feel like listing them all.

March 28th, Day 317: Canary melon

Fruit Info: YELLOW. That’s the biggest feature of today’s fruit. The canary melon is named after the iconic bird because of their shared colors. But Tweety aside, the fruit also has a nice sweet taste that’s somewhat tangier than the honeydew melon.

April 1st, Day 321: Fruit Salad

Fruit Info: Naturally growing in big tall boi trees , the fruit salad is considered a delicacy all across the world. It is usable for many occasions and purposes such as a snack at a party, a healthy side in a meal, maybe a meal replacement idk I’m not a dietician. Now some people may complain “a fruit salad isn’t a fruit it’s a bunch of fruit together” and they would be wrong to do so. That said, I have photographic evidence that fruit salads grow in order to connive them.

April 3rd, Day 323: Sprite Melon

Fruit Info: Similar in nature to the honeydew melon, the sprite melon tastes very much alike but much sweeter. Due to this it is more often eaten as a desert. While the fruit originated in Japan it has found a nice home in North Carolina where it is cultivated as a specialty crop of recently increasing popularity. Interestingly, the sprite melon also is in the same family as cucumbers, pumpkins, and gourds.

April 5th, Day 325: Youngberry

Fruit Info: The youngberry is a neat fruit that hybridizes various kinds of blackberries, raspberries, and dewberries. They don’t seem to be cultivated widely but they are cultivated on family farms in some places like Australia, New Zeland and Oregon. Why these places specifically is one of the great mysteries of science.

April 6th, Day 326: Stone Bramble (Rubus saxatilis)

Fruit Info: Today we have a neat little berry with quite the impressive habitat range. It’s been found all the way from Iceland and Spain down to China. They can be eaten raw or cooked, but no matter which way you eat them be prepared for an acidic feel. The fruit can be used to create a purple to dull blue dye (which considering the fruit is red is kind of weird).

how are you still going bro
Your guess is as good as mine.


April 7th, Day 327: Dewberry

Fruit Info: As foreshadowed in yesterday’s post, we now have the dewberry itself. The fruit is reminiscent of the raspberry in appearance except it is a dark purple or black color. They can be found throughout most the northern hemisphere where they are traditionally that of as a largely beneficial variety of weed. The dewberry tastes rather sweet, meaning it is great in pies, cobblers, and jams. It’s leaves are also good for making herbal teas.
