Name That Produce

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Name That Produce! Fresh out of the Berkeley Bowl we have three "lovely" contestants who would like you to guess their identities. If someone actually knows the names of all three of these, that person will be deemed "rockstar" by the author of this blog.

Contestant #1:



Contestant #2:




Contestant #3:





All of these are edible, I promise. Recently someone asked me what I've enjoyed about living in the Bay Area. My first response was how pretty it is. My next thought wasn't about the weather nor was it about living close to the ocean for the first time in my life, it was about finding amazing things at the grocery store.

I think it's time for a trip to The City.

I think I've got 2 out of 3, do I win? #2 is a Durian (right? it was either that or a jack fruit, but I am 99% sure it's a durian) But #3, that would be called Buddha's hand (or Buddha's fingers). We bought one once to show the fam...so sad, the thing had no fruit in it, just white rind straight through. Bummer.

I got it, Nat. It occupied mine and Ryan's time for about 10 min but #1 is Indian bitter melon or Hairy melon, #2 is durian (knew that from watching Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern) and #3 is Buddha's hand citron or Buddha's fingers citron.

I'll say it for you, I'm a flippin Rockstar!

Wow. It looks like Chelsea is the rockstar! Although Sarah was awfully close, so she can be the lead guitarist. :)

Chelsea said...

Yay! Thanks for finding those, that was fun.

In re: to the Chilton's -- I'm thinking Buddha's fingers would be good for a recipe that calls for a lot of lemon zest or for making candied lemon peels...

#1 - Long spiny thingy
#2 - Spiky ball thingy
#3 - Simpson dreadlocks

Did I get them right? :)

Team Chilton said...

Yeah we were thinking about that to use the zest, but it was about $8 for that thing!

Cassia said...

Wow. I can honestly say that I'd never seen or heard of any of those before now! Maybe I should expand my produce horizons... :)

The Rogers said...

OK I need some cool looking fruit LOL. I really need to go out there and check out the fruit they have.

Sar said...

Wow, you know you're not in Idaho anymore when you can pick up something called Buddha's fingers in the produce section.
