Guava (baby)

All the internets and side-of-package says that baby guavas are more fragrant and flavorful than the regular-sized ones, so I should probably have had a guava: original sauce before sampling these morsels.

They look kind of battered and they are PUNGENT but they are sooooer tasty.

Did I mention seedy?  Full of tiny, hard seeds.  And not tiny like strawberryseed-tiny, but tiny like grapeseed-tiny.  So, palpable.  But impossible to bite through, so you sort of just swallow them with the sweet, perfumey flesh.

They taste like a pear-slash-berry.  Pearberry!

Raspberries (yellow)

Yellow raspberries taste exactly the same as red raspberries

but are janky to look at.

Why should anyone have to SEE all the individual raspberry-hairs?  Red raspberries, bless you for your dark complexions.
