Introducing a new category covering mostly new finds in the culinary world, I thought these two beauties might be an apt start. We found the mini Kiwis on our regular Saturday morning stroll across the Viktualienmarkt in Munich – well, to be honest we sort of got talked into them, but don’t regret a bit to have purchased a whole box. In fact they were all gone before noon. Originally we thought they might be a variety of gooseberries, but the stand owner explained that those were Austrian mini Kiwis, so much sweeter in flavor than their larger relatives and need not to be peeled – just wash them and pop them straight into your mouth. Perfect “finger food”-style fruits! Did I mention that…yeah I think I did, they were gone before noon…
When I searched the net afterwards, I realized, that food bloggers are always ahead of time, so to speak, because you can also read about those cute little discoveries here.
Literally a stone throw away from where we found the mini Kiwis, we stumbled on these: A pomelo-tangerine cross, I just can’t recall their exact name! And no luck searching the web… Their flesh is compact (more so than from a tangerine), they can easily be peeled, but we prefered to eat them like a grapefruit (with a spoon), because their skin is somewhat thick. Very juicy and the bright orange flesh is pure eye candy. Taste-wise probably more tangerine than pomelo. Sweet and sour at the same time (does that make any sense?), but not as sour as their green skin would presume. In fact, the only overly green fruit we got was the sweetest of the whole bunch… I guess I can’t trust in my previous color & taste-experiences…just adapted it to “green citrus fruits are not always sour”… :)
