Filipino fruits, Part 1

So on one of the trips to our Iloilo fruit lady Martin & I noticed a strange, scaly-looking fruit. She told us it was ‘atis’ and we bought a couple.

Eating some on the way back to the hotel we were amazed – this is some seriously good fruit. We decided it tasted a bit like very ripe watermelon, only much more addictive. And thus was the nickname ‘crack melon’ born.

Mmmm, crack melon.

AND NOW YOU HAVE IT AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S CALLED! glory hallelujah, my searching has come to a close. write down the name in any language you can find out! i will reunite with the fruit of my dreams! :)
