If you read last week’s entry about H-Mart having exotic fruits, and are enticed by their varied selections, I am sure this entry will only progress those desires, further.
H-Mart has ALOT of exotic fruits. Remarkably so, even this entry can’t contain every single fruit that the store even has. I can only deduce, based on past visits, that H-Mart has between 20-25 different kinds of fruits available for your future nosh-fests.
For the second H-mart: Exotic Fruit Tasting series, I ( as well as two others) have devoured the following this week.
1.) Korean Melon: Peeling and cutting the melon into quarters wasn’t too hard. It’s funny that for most of these fruits, I had to Google instructions on how to cut and eat them. Korean melon has a strong, melon-like texture and a subtle melon taste. It’s like a poor man’s cantaloupe, taste wise. I can see it being served in addendum with stronger exotic fruits, but not so often on its own.
2.) Asian Pear: My favorite. Pear like texture but with a soft crunch. I love the blissfully light sweet aftertaste and the texture is easy to chomp on.
3.) Quince: I hate it. Peeling this asymmetrical fruit, cutting it into cumbersome pieces and eating this brownish fruit was a hassle for me. It’s so sour that I do not recommend this to anyone, at all.
4.)Star Fruit: This fruit is making a comeback on my website. It tastes so much better when it’s ripe. Make sure, when you buy this fruit, it has a yellow shell. It’s partially sweet and tempered with some sourness. But, overall, not so bad.
5.) Rambutan: If we are talking about appearances, this fruit is such an anomaly. It looks like a bleeding sea urchin waddling awkwardly in a cornucopia of fruit. If you plan on eating this fruit, just cut it in half and squeeze out the fleshy white meat out of its strange shell. Do not eat the seed enmeshed in the middle of the fruit. It’s tastes okay, and kind of reminds of lychee a bit.
