The 25 Strangest Fruits You’ve Never Seen


The term strange is associated with many things under the sun. But why would fruits be out of the list of strange things as well? Apart from the fruits we find in the supermarket, trees around the world are laden with exotic fruits that a little weirder than usual, either in their appearance or their taste! Of course, there is another way to look at this. What we call “strange” sometimes just means things that aren’t a part of our daily life. Is there anything strange about strawberries? No! What could be strange about a fruit which is found in every grocery store? However, if you asked someone in a foreign country that didn’t have any strawberries they might give you a different answer! Keeping that in mind, here are 25 fruits that are probably the strangest fruit YOU have ever seen in your lifetime!

25. Rambutan

If you are from Southeast Asia, chances are high that you will not find anything strange about this hairy red fruit as this is grown in the Malay-Indonesian region. However, for westerners, this sweet and tasty fruit is something which they do not get to see every now and then and would remind them more of a pom-pom than anything else. The fruit gets its name from the word “Rambut” which means hair in Malayan. In addition to its sweet taste, it is known as a local cure for diarrhea and dysentery – gross!
