Yes, another ugly but delicious fruit.
The fruta do conde is another produce that is seasonal, so when you see it, you really should snap it up. Although it is quite expensive – this one cost me R$5.50. But sometimes, you get what you pay for…
Another fruit imported from Asia (Asia has all the good fruits), in Brazil it grows in Bahia. Apparently, it also is grown in Florida (U.S.A.) under the alias the “custard pineapple” though I never came across it when I lived there.
Not only is this fruit unattractive, but it is difficult.
A big black seed in encased in every piece of the flesh of the fruit. But it is well worth the battle for the sweet, almost powdery textured meat. Delicious!
