Last time I blogged about a magic fruit that is sour, but turns sweet after you rub it in the hand. Last week I was introduced another kind of magic fruit in a Tenom plantation.
This magic fruit becomes bright red when it is rippen, much like a very fat chilli in oval shape.
For a magical moment, just chew it. The seed is big and the taste is sour. But when you put anything sour such as lemon and mangga in your mouth, it will taste sweet.Perhaps there is any chemical substance that turns fruit acid into sugar. An interesting experience anyway.
Goodness my fingers look so long when I am slim. It also reminds me that it’s time to cut my nails… 😛

One thought on “Magic Fruit No.2”
Magic Berry scientifically known as synsepalum Dulcificum. The effect experienced is caused by a glycoprotein contained in the fruit called miraculin. It’s good for diabetic to make food taste sweet minus the sugar.
I have two plants grown at my hometown house both from the agriculture park.
