When you’re trying to be good and eat all your fruits and vegetables, you can get bored with eating the same things over and over. Recently, I’ve been trying new fruit.
My absolute favourite new fruit is the donut peach. Also called a saucer peach (as in flying saucers), they look like peaches that have been smushed. Inside, the flesh is white with a tinge of pink. The taste is sweeter and more delicate than a regular peach, and I’m finding that I like them so much better than regular peaches. The flesh is also really delicate, so you have to be careful when handling them or picking them out in the grocery store. They’re more expensive than regular peaches as well, so make sure you budget for them!
Another fruit that I’ve tried recently is the red pear. The bright skin caught my eye in the grocery store, and I couldn’t resist picking up a couple. The taste was… well it was like a pear, except that the texture was slightly less gritty. Given that these were more expensive than other pears, I probably wouldn’t pick them up again. They sure are bright and pretty though.
