Miracle Fruit

More than a miracle fruit it sounds like a fun fruit. Eat this berry (Synsepalum dulcificum) and your taste buds get tweaked. Suddenly sour foods taste sweet. While there doesn’t seem to be any negative side effects, there is a caution to watch what you eat. While lemon juice may taste splendid after eating a miracle fruit, your stomach may not be so happy with the high acidity.

So, if you’re going to test your taste buds, do it in moderation. Want to buy one in Connecticut. Order today because they seem to be hard to come buy. Loggees Greenhouse sells them but are currently all sold out. Some places are now selling tablets of the berry, but I’m not sure a tablet qualifies during Fruit and Vegetable Month.

And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.

    We just did a project on these in class. The tablets worked great. I say they count since I ate more fruit in an hour than I usually have all month. I’m dying to try the real fruit to see if there’s a difference, but it’s expensive.

    Yeah. That is a bummer. A lot of exotic fruit seems a bit pricey.
    I’m glad you had fun with it and tried a lot of fruit.
