fruity newness

“Taste every fruit of every tree in the garden at least once. It is an insult to creation not to experience it fully.”
– Stephen Fry

I didn’t know that cacti produced edible fruit until I moved west. An exciting discovery! This thing looked like a dry white kiwi on the inside. It tasted rather bland to me, but perhaps I didn’t try it at its ripest moment. Or perhaps I was stuck in my kiwi comparison. My delight did not come from the actual texture or taste but from the newness of it. I’ll definitely be going back for seconds.

When was the last time you tried something new?
