Blackberry jam fruit review: The fruit that looks like jam – Weird fruit explorer Ep 265


[Music] Hello everybody! So I am thrilled to have the fruit that I have today because this is one that is really interesting. You know, I’ve read about it before and it just seems like one of those things that is like almost too good to be true from the description. This is blackberry jam fruit which is supposed to taste as you would imagine like blackberry jam and you know in the past I’ve had a lot of things that are supposed to taste like other things and sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t but whether or not this does taste like blackberry jam, it is supposed to be really really tasty so at least looking forward to that. Before I go any further, I need to thank the person who sent this to me. Dr. Tourgeman who is one of my patrons over on Patreon. Thank you (3x) Thank you for sending this to me because this is something I really really wanted to try and I’ve heard so much about it. You know, it’s in fruit hunters, the book about rare fruit. That’s probably the first time I heard about it, and it’s got some notoriety, so let’s take a look at the exterior here. You can see that it looks kind of like a like a tiny loquat, but what’s interesting about it is that it is actually quite hard. It’s like a little woody on the outside. I mean you’d be able to you know, break it with your fingers, when I squeeze it, I can kind of feel it giving but not giving as if it’s full of fruit, but that it’s got like some air in it. and there we go Look at that. How weird is that. It is like a very very dark color on the inside, which is just like a really a high contrast to how light it is on the outside. Yeah, that is pretty crazy looking. It’s like shiny too, and you can see why it was why I said it was kinda hollow on the outside. There is quite a lot of air in there. The fruit is just kind of sitting in there. The inside is like a jam consistency. That’s cool. There are some very like small seeds in there. There seems to be like quite a little, quite a bunch in there. That is very interesting. I don’t think it tastes like blackberry jam though. It does a little bit. It definitely reminds me of jam. I just don’t think I would go with blackberry. I think that there is quite a lot of little flavors in there. But I’m not– It’s not screaming berry to me, so I’d say like a good base flavor for this would be like raisins and prunes, maybe more towards a prune. So let’s say let’s put like a layer of prune there. Well this is kind of like an undertone. A more major flavor for it is honey but not just like any honey like like a little bit bitter and a very floral honey. Actually quite a lot like chestnut honey and maybe a hint of blackberry, but I’m reaching to get that blackberry because I want to taste like blackberry. But I don’t think it does. I think what it tastes like however is incredibly good. It’s just very unique It’s not– blackberry jam I think does not really do it justice because there’s a lot of little complicated flavors in there so like chestnut honey, rose petals, prunes. That’s kind of what I get so yeah, I think that’s about it. Once again, thank you Dr. Tourgeman for sending this to me, and this is a really really interesting one and really glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Alright, until next time guys. Bye-bye!
