Peanut Butter Fruit Review (Bunchosia argentea) – Weird Fruit Explorer Ep 152


[Music] All right, this one’s really exciting guys I have Peanut Butter Fruit. This is a fruit that like its name is supposed to taste exactly like peanut butter It’s related to the acerola which is really really sour and like of full vitamin C so it’s used in… a lot like Vitamin C supplements. I’m imagining this is not going to be very sour if it’s supposed to taste like peanut butter, but yeah, we’ll see and yeah, they look like little tomatoes almost. I saw this at a market. It was just like a woman selling them and like they’re very very fragile so I bought like a big bag of them, and I put them inside a tupperware and I had a flight going from one end of Borneo to the other and when I got here I opened up the tupperware it went [Hissing noise] which means that some of them even so, even though I like packed them up and I tried to be careful, they still got damaged and fermented along the way. I managed to salvage probably like 1/4 of what I had But yeah, they look like they’re fine like these are not damaged. They don’t smell fermented or anything so I think it’s gonna be ok. If it tastes like wine, then I’m gonna have to look again for these so Yeah, let’s first give it a smell. They do smell a little bit like peanut butter. Not that strong, but like a little bit. Pulled one of these guys off Holy sh*t! I try not to swear too often but that tastes like peanut butter. That tastes, I mean not exactly. That’s very “peanut butter-ish”. Yeah, that I can see why they call it peanut butter fruit. It’s not like 100% peanut butter but it is very very close and it has like the texture of peanut butter too. It’s like, very like creamy, like a creamy Jif peanut butter. The seeds are kind of wild looking. They’re like a bright orange looking color. That one I’ve just had then, that one was a little fermented. The first one was good. Let me try another one. Some of them end up being orange. You get some… It turned from like green to yellow to orange to like very bright red and I’ll try one, the orange ones to see if those are okay, but you know the red ones are definitely Okay It’s not like 100% peanut butter. It’s like you took peanut butter and jelly and mixed it together. It has a fruity taste to it. It’s not very sour but it is very sweet and a little bit like “berryish” so it’s like if you took peanut butter, and maybe like I don’t know like very mild like strawberry jam and like mixed it together. It’s not strawberry tasting, but it’s like “berryish” tasting. Really really interesting like that’s pretty crazy. I’ll try one of the orange ones just to see if these are okay. A little more bland, still a little “peanut buttery”, less “berryish”. Its got like a firmer texture but less flavor. So yeah, definitely the red ones are more hitting mark. What’s really crazy with this like if you’re like allergic to peanut and you want the flavor of peanut butter, you want like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, this is like perfect. You just make a jelly out of peanut butter fruit and you immediately… and spread that on toast you have peanut butter and jelly flavor without using any peanuts. That’s pretty crazy, this is one of the more like bizarre flavored fruits that I’ve definitely come across, so Yeah, really really excited to find this one It is actually like a South American fruit, so I was not expecting to find this here in Borneo, but apparently it grows here and people have brought it over. I saw a vendor selling this who was selling a lot of imported fruit like fruit that I’m sure is grown here but like apples and grapes and stuff like that not crazy jungle fruit. Alright, you may notice that it’s a little darker right now. So I’ve been like sitting here outside eating these things and I’ve come to another revelation. They taste a little bit like the Olosapo. Like it, it’s like an egg fruit kind of flavor. like sweet egg custard It’s got like a little bit of that kind of flavor to it but with the addition of this kind of like weird fruitiness and peanut buttery kind of flavor. bizarre, really bizarre Alright, I’m going to sit here and continue to eat these things.
