The Baobab Fruit is Coming!

That’s baobab fruit, from the giant baobab tree, and apparently it’s amazing! In fact, its dried pulp, which is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and twice as much calcium as milk, is poised to become 2009’s newest super fruit; FoodNavigator explains.

Like the mysterious black garlic, I’ve never tried it. Have you?

I once ate a baobab fruit when I lived in Zimbabwe. I wouldn't recommend it. Inside the fruit is largely air with some strings of pulp that seeds dangle from. Scraping the shell removes some pulp which has a kind of tart and chalky taste. Most people in my village did not eat it.
Of course, I'm sure once we harvest it and freeze it, I'll be adding it to my smoothies like everyone else. After all, I have no idea what this acai or goji stuff looks like in nature and I add it into my oatmeal and smoothie rotation.
