So Kauai has lots of strange fruits. This week I have tried three new ones, all from the same family:
Delicious and strange little popples.
The strangest fruit I have seen, though, is the very rare rudraksha, a vibrant blue fruit whose seed is used as a sort of Hindu rosary bead. Kauai's Hindu Monastery has America's only rudraksha grove, pictured below.
Smurfberries are real. Now on to finding Gummiberries. (And yes, for those of you keeping track at home, that is two blog mentions about 80s cartoons this week. And I haven't even gotten into all the time I've spent Snorking around this week.)
