I would rather eat the heart of my palm than the fruit. Just my preference of taste.
Didn't they serve that at the biennial? With mayo for dipping? I couldn't stomach them
I'd have to be on a desert island with no other source of food
Yep, at the Costa Rica Biennial - has a mealy texture and is an acquired taste for us gringoes.
I do like pupunha as the fruit is called here. The palm is native to my region and is a totally domesticated tree, only found with people around. It really depends a lot on the tree the fruit comes from. They varie a lot. Here they are boiled in salted water and then you peel off the skn and eat the fruit. But, I guess it is not for everyone.
The common name is "Peach Palm". With a name like that I believe we send a bias message to our taste buds and reality does not match the anticipation. I actually have a jar of the fruit in my fridge right now. Bren may be a little over dramatic. She would gladly eat them if raw iguana and tree snails were the other choices.
Do vegetarians eat snails?
Wrong Ron, I love snails prepared right and I hear iguana tastes like chicken over an open fire. Those fruit awakened my gag reflex LOL
