Chesa, Egg Fruit, Sapote, Tiessa, Canistel

Fruit :)
Fruit 🙂 my nails look decent enough to post this 🙂 

I asked mom to get me fruits from the supermarket (in my attempt at trying to eat better, which I am failing at) and one of the things she included is chesa. Not all are familiar with this fruit. Even in our household, I may have eaten this twice, one out of curiosity, and the second one was this one. But I like it. It’s very pungent, with the smell of a sweeter durian (enough to turn people away). The seeds are huge brown blobs 🙂

The fruit itself is sweet. But very waxy, which is to why it is called called fruit (akin to the egg yolk). It crumbles with a bit of pressure, and would easily make a good mash of fruit.

This fruit is not as popular as other local fruits, but I like it. Will most probably include more of this in my diet! 🙂

  1. Greetings! I’ve been following your blog for a long time
    now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout
    out from Porter Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the good job!

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
