My father-in-law recently took a trip to California.
And he brought us back some of these. I had never had one before.
And I apologize that the picture is not better, by the time I took the picture it was not at its freshest.
Do you know what it is?
It’s very small, isn’t it? I want to say golden passion fruit, but the color’s not quite right. From the outside it almost looks like a tomatillo out of it’s husk.
I was thinking the same thing as Sandy…a tomatillo without the husk…but the insides look kinda like a fig…although the outside doesn’t! I have no idea what this thing is!!!
I’m back again….after looking at the insides once more…this has to be some kind of fig…..so that is my guess! 🙂
It looks like photos I have seen of dragon fruit…but not sure.
A green fig. I had one for lunch. The people at the store didn’t know the exact name just Green Fig. It wasn’t as flavorful as a black fig but it was interesting.
It’s a fig
Looks like a fig to me.
a tomatillo or guava
I’m agreeing with the last few commentors – looks like a fig of some kind. Cover it with chocolate and pistascios and it will be very yummy.
Its fruit has green skin and white flesh, which turns black when ripe.
The shape and size looks right for a persimmon, but all of the ones I have seen are kind of orange not green, but the only ones I have seen are in the south, not California.
A green fig, my favourite summer fruit! I love them drizzled with honey and chopped almonds and then baked in the oved – yum!
It;s a fig. We grew them in our backyard in San Diego, CA.
This looks like an unripe fig…???
I sure didn’t recognize the outside, but the inside sure says “fig”. It IS getting to be fig time, isn’t it? A fresh fig is so different from the dried ones that it’s hard to believe they’re the same fruit.
It looks like a tomatillo without its husk.
I thought it was a tomatillo (without a husk), too, but the inside definitely looks like a fig. How did it taste?
I will post what it is next Wednesday and how we used it/liked it. But I will say I loved it, whatever it is. 🙂
I think it’s a fig, too!
I t could be a guava.
I agree that it looks like a green fig.
It totally looks like a fig on the inside. I am not up on my figs, but am pretty sure I’ve seen green figs.
Okay, am I the only one that wants to have What was it Thursday. A week is a long time! I have no idea what it is. 🙂
I know and I have thought of giving the answer earlier than a week, but I would have to come up with a new item each week, which for me would be harder. I could maybe just not do them as often, so it would not be weekly. You are not the first one to mention that, so I will give it some thought. 🙂
It’s a fig. Commonly called a white fig, even though the skin is green. They are WONDERFUL
Has to be a fig with that inside.
It sort of looks like a squished guava because of the color, but the seeds look more fig-like. I am eager to know the true identity!
I’m from California, too, and this looks like a green fig. They’re plentiful right now — but they’re not sweet. It looks like a guava when whole, but the seeds give it away.
It’s definitely a fig! I got them in my bountiful baskets last weekend. Not sure how to cook them.
Definitely a fig! I have a fig tree in my backyard and love these little treasures in the fall. Sweet like honey!
It looks like a fig?
It’s a fig. We have a few fig trees. Love the smell of them.
It is a FIG! We have them here that my MIL grows!
They are delicious, just spoon them out and eat as is!
Hope you enjoy eating them!
It’s a fig! they’re scrumptious!
It is a fig! 🙂
looks like a fig inside??
It’s GOT to be a fig, we have and enjoy them here in the south!
It is a green fig and that is one of the sweetest fruit I have ever eaten. Absolutely delicious!
