 Exotic Fruits You Should Try

Star Fruit (Carambola)

Despite having a lot of fiber and vitamin C, each has fewer than 40 calories. There is no need to peel or seed—just wash, slice, and consume. It’s an excellent garnish and salad ingredient. If you have kidney issues, though, stay away from it. Oxalic acid, which causes kidney stones, is found in star fruit.

Acai

Like all berries, it’s rich in fiber and antioxidants.

Jackfruit

Dragon fruit offers plenty of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and may even help keep your gut bacteria healthy. 

Breadfruit

Breadfruit

A Pacific island staple for thousands of years, this football-sized fruit gets its name from the bread-like texture it gets when roasted. It lacks a strong flavor, but it can be eaten mashed or fried in place of potatoes. Fat-free and gluten-free, it’s rich in complex carbs, fiber, and potassium. Buy it at Caribbean markets and farmer’s markets. Before cooking, cut off the stem and place stem-side down to drain any sap.

Guava

Guava

Guavas are thought to have originated in Central and South America. Juicy, sweet, and acidic, they might remind you of strawberries and pears. The edible rind can be white, yellow, pink, or red. Some guavas are seedless. Others have pale, edible seeds. One guava has more vitamin C than an orange, along with vitamin A, fiber, potassium, and phosphorus. Use them in juices, jams, and desserts.

Passion Fruit

Passion Fruit

Fragrant and purple, red, or yellow, passion fruit hails from South America. Spanish missionaries named it for its plant’s five-petaled flower, which they saw as symbols of Christ’s injuries in the crucifixion. It tastes similar to guava.

Durian

Durian is a southeast Asian fruit you either love or hate. It’s nicknamed the king of fruits due to its custard-like flavor and size (up to 18 pounds). It’s also called corpse fruit, thanks to its super-stinky smell. The spiky fruit is rich in iron, vitamin C, folic acid, and potassium. But it also has about 357 calories per cup.

Horned melon is low in calories and high in antioxidants, especially vitamin A.

Mangosteen

Mangosteen

Exotic Fruits From Around The World (With Pictures!)

Most of us in the West consider a trip to the grocery store’s fruit area to be rather routine. Apples, bananas, and if we’re lucky, a mango. Even some trendy farmer’s markets are largely restricted to local produce.

But you may be surprised to learn just how many different exotic fruits there are out there! 66 of them are listed here. Even if you do remember a handful of them, some of these guys are either extremely expensive and only accessible from specialty shops in hip US cities, or they are only available on specific countries. For instance, I recently paid $6.00 USD for a single Kiwano fruit!

Big List Of Exotic Fruits!

List Update!

I learned about a ton of new fruits after my May 2017 trip to Peru to see Machu Picchu. It merely goes to demonstrate that there is a lot more out there than even these 66 fruits (which are now 68).

#1: Lucuma

Peruvians claim that although most people don’t actually eat this fruit, they particularly like the flavor it adds to other foods. According to the folks I asked, the texture isn’t really pleasant, but it is sweet!

They include it in desserts including ice cream, pudding, cakes, pies, and pastries. Actually, I first heard about it in my neighborhood Starbucks. Definitely not available in the USA! Frappuccinos are normally not my cup of tea, and this one was far too sugary for me. I failed to complete it. However, I observed a ton of people ordering it, so it must have been well-liked. On this list, the chirimoya (white one) is also included lower.

#2: Pacay / Guama (Ice Cream Bean)

The other fruit, commonly known as pacay or ice cream bean, truly impressed me. The renowned Centrale restaurant is where I first encountered this fruit. A dinner reservation must typically be made four months in advance at one of the most well-known restaurants in the world. I managed to go in at lunch and find a place. lucky me An ice cream bean was one of the dishes.

Unfortunately, the price was extremely high there; my entire lunch came to approximately $150, making my single “bean” cost about $20 (not even the entire pod!)

I then kept on traveling and had it for breakfast once more at a little hostel. Three beans there cost me roughly $0.20. While wonderful, the consistency is a little strange. Though it has a cotton candy-like touch, it resembles a packing peanut made of Styrofoam. Although sweet, it’s not too so. It also kind of squishes in your mouth like cotton candy does.

Chayote

Chayote belongs to the same family as squash, melons and cucumbers and the plant is native to Mexico, where it grows abundantly. The fruit can be eaten raw and is sometimes used in salsas or salads, although most of the time it is marinated in either lime or lemon juice first.

Most of the time however, the fruit is lightly cooked, which helps to keep the texture of the fruit. The skin does not need to be removed prior to cooking.

Fuyu Persimmon

Persimmons are often referred to as ‘the fruit of the gods’ and there is a fair amount of history and mythology that surrounds the fruit. However, it can also be a bit controversial, because many varieties need to be very soft before they can be eaten.

The Fuyu persimmon is the most accessible variety of persimmon because it is non-astringent. This means that it is sweet and tasty when the fruit is firm.

Durian

Durian one of those foods that people either love or hate. Inside the thorny exterior is a soft creamy fruit that has an extremely intense aroma. In fact, you can often smell the fruit even when the shell is intact.

Descriptions of the taste vary considerably, but one example is that the fruit tastes like ‘rotten mushy onions’. Despite this, there are many people who are fanatical about the fruit and even competitive eating contests that focus on its consumption.

Pomelo

As appearances suggest, pomelo is a citrus fruit and it originally comes from Southeast Asia. When ripe, the fruit is yellow or pale green and tends to have white flesh and thick rind.

The taste is like a sweet grapefruit and it lacks the bitterness normally associated with grapefruit. However, the fruit does still have the potential to interact with some medications in the same way that grapefruit does.

Starfruit

starfruit

Starfruit is a type of tropical fruit that is rapidly becoming popular in the United States. The shape of the fruit means that when it is sliced, the section form five-pointed stars (although in some cases fruits may have a slightly different shape).

The flesh of the fruit is crunchy and juicy, and the taste can vary considerably across the fruit. Ripe fruit can be eaten raw (in their entirety), while unripe fruit are sometimes used in cooking.

Kiwano, AKA African cucumber/horned melon

Even from the outside, the kiwano looks a little odd, and from the inside the fruit is even more confusing. The flesh itself actually tastes a combination of kiwifruit, zucchini and cucumber, which is an odd combination that also seems to be quite appealing.

Eating the fruit is simple, you simply cut it in half and squeeze the green ooze out, or you can eat it with a spoon. The pulp is also good as a garnish, in fruit salads or in drinks.

Atemoya

The atemoya is actually a hybrid of two different fruits, which are cherimoya and the sugar-apple, although most people probably haven’t heard of those either.

Even though it looks resilient, the fruit is easily damaged, so it needs to be handled carefully. While the flesh of the fruit is edible and delicious, the seeds are not safe to eat and should be avoided.

Black Sapote

For just about any other fruit, a brown or black interior indicates that the fruit is past its best, but that’s not true for the black sapote.

Instead, the interior looks like this when the fruit is ripe and ready to eat. The texture, taste and color of the fruit have all been associated with chocolate pudding, which makes the fruit both appealing and highly unusual.

While a real chocolate pudding might still be more appealing, the fruit has the advantage of being much better for you.

Buddha’s Hand

Multiple different varieties of Buddha’s hand exist, often with considerable variation in the way that the ‘fingers’ are held. In some varieties, the fingers are close together (as in the images), while in other varieties they are splayed out in an open hand pattern.

The use of this fruit is largely ornamental, both because of its appearance and because of the aroma of the fruit. However, the fruit can be eaten, and is sometimes used in desserts and in savory meals.

Canistel AKA Tiesa

Canistel is one of a few fruits in the world that isn’t juicy or particularly easy to eat. The fruit has a very chewy consistency that borders on chalky, and it is easy for some of the fibers to get stuck in your teeth.

At the same time, the taste of the fruit is reminiscent of a sweet potato, although it does tend to be a more intense flavor. When eating this fruit, you want to be sure that it is ripe.

This occurs when it gives in easily to a little pressure from your thumb (much like an avocado) and when the skin is entirely yellow.

Cucamelon

Cucamelons are incredibly cute tiny fruit that look like baby watermelons from the outside. They are considered savory fruits and taste more likely cucumber with a little lemon juice than like an actual melon.

The fruit works well in savory dishes, like stir-fries, and they also work well raw in salads or salsas. Or, you can just pop them in your mouth as-is.

Feijoa

Feijoas mature in autumn and are a sweet fruit with flavors of mint, pineapple and apple. They are commonly eaten but cutting in half and scooping out the interior with a spoon, although the fruit is also a particularly good in smoothies because of its complex taste.

Feijoas are most commonly cultivated for food in New Zealand and they tend to be hard to find and expensive in many other parts of the world, including the United States.

Soursop AKA Guanabana

The inside of the soursop has white pulp along with black seeds that cannot be digested.

The flesh itself tastes like a combination of pineapple and strawberry, along with some more sour citrus elements. This makes it a common choice for smoothies and fruit juice drinks.

Debate has focused on the potential health benefits of the fruit, including its potential to reduce stomach pain, inflammation, help relieve respiratory issues and even for fighting cancer. However, most of these claims need much more research before they can be verified.

Cherimoya

Cherimoya is thought to be one of the best tasting fruits in the world and has a creamy texture. This texture also means that the fruit is enjoyable when chilled and then eaten with a spoon.

Descriptions of taste vary, but most focus on cherimoya tasting like a combination of other fruits, including banana, strawberry and pineapple. The fruit has a very short shelf-life, which is one reason why it is so hard to find.

Exotic Fruits You Need to Try at Least Once

25 Tropical Fruits You Need to Try At Least Once

Nothing is more energizing and invigorating than biting into a juicy, delectable apple on a warm summer day or adding some sweet, ripe banana slices to your oatmeal in the morning. But if you’re like us, you’ll occasionally want to switch things up and test your palate with something a little more unusual.

Check out these 25 tropical fruits to give your taste buds a boost if the traditional apple or zesty orange are too dull and monotonous for you.

1. Passion fruit

Passion fruit is the best choice for those who enjoy tart, citrusy flavors that pack a punch. It’s enclosed in a tough skin, but inside, it’s gelatinous in texture, with crunchy seeds balancing the flavors out.

Eating passion fruit raw provides the best, out-of-this-world tropical experience, but if that’s a bit too intense for you, mixing the fruit with yogurt or sorbet is another good way to go. 

Bonus: Desserts based on passion fruit are to die for. Check out these delicious recipes that are based on this exotic fruit: mango and passion fruit meringue roulade, passion fruit cheesecake, and mango & passion fruit tart.

2. Dragon fruit

Not only does dragon fruit look delicious, it also tastes incredibly delicious and sweet. Native to Central America, this reddish-pink, fleshy fruit has a deliciously sweet, slightly sour taste, similar to a pear or a kiwi.

Like passion fruit, it has crunchy, tiny seeds inside its spiky shell, which give it an extra punch.

3. Lychee

This delicious, pulpy, strawberry-like fruit tastes just as yummy as it sounds. The pink-hued shell covers a delicious, almost translucent pulp that packs an incredibly sweet punch and leaves your mouth watering.

It tastes somewhat similar to a grape, but with floral undertones and a more consistent texture. It’s also amazing when mixed into your favorite desserts. 

4. Jackfruit

Jackfruit has a very strong flavor that resembles a citrusy banana, though some people say that it tastes like meat. It’s true that the pulp of the jackfruit has a meaty consistency, but that’s (almost) where the similarity ends.

When ripe, jackfruit has a sugary tropical flavor, but when unripe, its stringy texture makes it a good substitute for pulled pork. So, you can either work it into a dessert, or wrap it in a taco for a delicious vegan lunch. 

5. Durian fruit

While jackfruit elicits mixed responses, durian fruit is likely to provoke more frowns than smiles. At least at first glance. Durian fruit is packed full of nutrients and it’s incredibly healthy, yet it can be hard to get past its very potent smell.

Still, if you manage to ignore that, you’ll find that durian tastes somewhat like cheese mixed with garlic and caramel. Does it sound interesting enough to give it a go?

6. Custard apple

Also known as cherimoya, this exotic fruit hails from South America, and its core consists of a creamy, pulpy, custard-like filling that luckily tastes like a mix of pineapple and banana.

Be careful not to eat the seeds, though, as they’re incredibly toxic. The custardy pulp is highly nutritious, packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and lots of fiber.

7. Mangosteen

Few fruits look as intriguing and enticing as this next one on the list. And no, it has nothing to do with mango. Harking from the Indo-Malay region, mangosteen consists of a purple-y hard skin with a snow-white, pulpy interior that kind of looks like a star.

It’s incredibly sweet and delicious and a real treat for anyone with a sweet tooth. The mangosteen’s fleshy, juicy pulp is similar to that of lychee, and it tastes a little bit like a peachy pineapple. 

8. Rambutan

Rambutan basically means ‘hairy’ in Malay, which is not surprising given that its reddish shell looks like a punk rocker’s hairstyle. However, dig into it, and you’ll find a creamy pulp that tastes a bit like a pear, though with a slight woody note.

Rambutan hails from the same family as lychee, so it too can be used freely in desserts, fruit salads, or simply eaten raw.

9. Pomelo

If you enjoy grapefruit, then you should try pomelo, which is basically the grapefruit’s older, wiser, more exotic cousin. Shaped like a big pear, pomelo can grow as big as a cantaloupe, and it tastes much sweeter than a grapefruit.

It’s a great source of vitamin C and a great choice if you’re not a big fan of the bitter taste of grapefruit. 

10. Snake fruit

Otherwise known as salak, snake fruit looks sort of like a lychee that’s been dipped in chocolate. To others, it might look like a textured chestnut due to its scaley brownish skin.

But if you’re willing to get past the aesthetics, you’ll find that the inside of salak tastes like a mix between an apple and a banana, with just a hint of honey on top. It packs a lot of fiber, so it’s also aid to digestion.
