Egg Fruit is here!

Attention lovers of exotic fruits, veggies, and plants in general. Somehow, we’ve just gotten our hands on some USA-grown egg fruit. It’s mildly sweet with a texture reminiscent of thoroughly cooked buttercup squash or pumpkin pie. It is native to Mexico, El Slavador and most common in the Bahamas, Jamaica and Cuba. Egg fruit is rich in niacin and provitamin A and have a fair level of ascorbic acid. Some enjoy the fruit with salt, pepper and lime or lemon juice!
