This one was my daughter's recommendation. We had a great time exploring the grocery store & picking out some new fruits for us to try together.
1. Have you tried a Champagne Mango? They are smooth, velvety and sweet. I had to do research re when we could eat it. How do you know when its ripe? It changes color from green to deep gold when its gold -- eat it!
2. What about a Star Fruit? This one did not get rave reviews. Ours was very tart. I learned non-ripe fruit should be turned often and are ready to eat when they are yellow with light brown ribs.
3. How bout an Asain Pear? We really enjoyed this apple-like pear. To select a good pear you need to rely on smell vs firmness. Unlike other pears Asian Pears are ripe even when they are extremely firm.
I enjoyed this challenge because it involved time with my kids. They are very interested in my blog and challenges. I appreciated that they wanted to support me and get involved! I know that as they grow I will be able to spend less and less time with them, so I truly value every second I can get now! They are growing into great people.
