Early Gold Mango
Early Gold is the most delicious mango I’ve ever tasted! It’s perfect for eating right out of hand with its juicy, sweet flavor. The Early Gold is not always available, but it is well worth waiting for.
When ripe, it has a firm yellow-green skin and a white flesh that is soft and buttery. Early Gold mangos will stay fresh for about three days when stored in a cool room, away from direct sunlight.
I’ve always been a fan of elderberries, and am often buying them by the bunch from the farmer’s market. Elderberries are everywhere in my yard and I pick them all to use for jam, jelly, syrup, or wine. My favorite way to eat them is straight out of the jar!
People often wonder whether they are poisonous. Elderberries are in fact very nutritious, The stems and roots can be used medicinally as well as in foods.
An etrog is a citrus fruit used during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, which is about celebrating the harvest. In some Sephardic communities, it’s also a wedding tradition for the bride to carry an Etrog on her head as she walks down the aisle.
Etrogim are always large, round, and yellow in color, and are mostly grown in Israel. The aroma of an etrog is so fragrant that it is often described as smelling like “pure lemon oil.” I buy my etrog from a group of people who grow them on their property close by my home.
Emblica fruit is grown in the coastal regions of India and is also known as “jackfruit.” It looks a little like a small pumpkin and is an excellent source nutrients.
Emblic fruit has become popular in the last few decades because of its high levels of antioxidants. I use it in my cooking as a replacement for apple juice when I’m looking for that apple flavor.
They are tasty, juicy, and I love them. They’re a cross between a blueberry and a blackberry, but they have a flavor all their own. Some people claim that they taste like blueberries.
I personally believe that they have a unique flavor that’s just like blackberries, but with less of a bite. While picking huckleberries, look for berries that are shiny red, dark purple or black in color. Ripe berries will be firm to the touch but soft to the squeeze. Although many types of huckleberry exist, the most common is the red huckleberry , which grows in North America from Canada to Mexico and from New England to Montana.
Emu Apple Fruit
Emu apples are found in the desert regions of Australia. The fruit is also known as desert lime and prickly pear fruit. It has a taste similar to a kiwi, and is often added to jams or used in juices.
The fruits are smooth, round, hard and green in color. They will naturally turn yellow after picking and continue to ripen until they eventually turn orange at the core. It is during this stage that they are most flavorful, but if you can’t wait to get them into your mouth, the green stage tastes good too.
One of the most impressive trees I’ve ever seen is the entawak tree. Also known as the orangutan tree because its strong branches are used by them to travel from tree to tree, this tree can grow up to 300 feet tall.
Entawaks are native to Malaysia and Indonesia, and their fruit is sometimes used to make syrup and jelly. The fruit is green when it’s unripe, but turns a lovely orange-red when it matures. The taste reminds me of a cross between pineapple and mangoes with a hint of banana, some people say it tastes more like green apples.
Emu Berry Fruit
The emu berry is a small, dark purple fruit about the size of an olive. It’s native to Australia, and that’s also where most of them are grown. The fruit has a slightly sour taste.
Emu berries are often used in jams or chutney, and can be frozen for future use as well. It can be used in any savory recipe, and is sometimes added to smoothies, raw desserts and even ice cream. I love to use my emu berries in a mix for my homemade bread-like crackers.
The elephant apple is a fruit that looks like a small, green apple that is grown in the Himalayan regions. The taste and texture are similar to an apricot, but it can also be used to make jelly and syrup.
The fruit is usually round, with a skin that turns from green to red when ripe. They can grow up to 8 inches long, but their skin will turn from green to red when they’re ripe. It’s also common for them to have bumps on them when they are unripe.
The European pear is a little sweet while it’s ripe, sometimes referred to as the Italian pear because they are so common there. Their skin is smooth and thin, and they’re often eaten raw or cooked into desserts or jams.
The European pear tree is unusual because it has branches that are shaped like a vase, which makes it ideal for training if you’re looking for something different. The trees are high maintenance to grow, but the reward is very sweet fruit.
Eggplants are part of the nightshade family, and they are really versatile. They have many interesting uses besides just being savory.
I love to use eggplants in my smoothies because they make them so creamy and taste delicious. There’s something about their flavor that really fits into a smoothie. You won’t be able to tell they weren’t fresh.
The eastern hawthorn fruit is also known as the horse chestnut, and was one of the first fruit trees cultivated in North America. This tree can grow to be over 100 feet tall, which is why it’s not commonly grown as a fruit anymore. The very first Christmas trees were actually made of hawthorns.
The fruit is round and has a bright red color. It tastes like a mixture between a raspberry and a strawberry, and can be eaten raw or cooked into desserts or jams. I love to add this amazing flavor to my fried chicken recipes because it compliments the flavors so well.
The enterprise apple is also known as the yellow delicious that is a very popular apple in the United States. It’s sweet and juicy, and has a crispy bite when it’s picked on the green side.
Escallonia Berry Fruit
The escallonia berry fruit is known for its small, bright red berries that are found only in areas of Chile. They are grown in small numbers around the world and have a unique, sweet flavor with a hint of lemon. This versatile fruit can be eaten fresh, or frozen and used in smoothies later.
The berries are pale pink to bright red when they’re ripe, but will change colors if left to ripen further. It is a very healthy fruit that contains many antioxidants. I love adding them to plain yogurt or in my sorbet.
The egg fruit is a small, soft, edible fruit that looks like an egg. It is native to the Philippines. The fruit has a stringy texture like pearls and it smells like a mix of honey and banana. You can eat it as is, or use it in smoothies or desserts.
It is also used to make juice and jelly and is sometimes added to breads and crackers. It is found in many Asian markets and is sold by itself or with other fruits. It’s best to use it right away, but it can be frozen to use at a later date.
