Ten of the World’s Strangest Fruits (slideshow)

10. Physalis
The physalis is more or less a gooseberry that grows enclosed in a long, papery husk. Like tomatoes and some berries, the physalis has a tangy, refreshing flavor and may be used in salads or to make jams and jellies. Plus, it’s pretty.

My grandma grew custard apples which are grainy but nice. Uncorked unfortunately I am not a lover of fruit except for apples, berries and watermellon.

Number 10 looks like Chinese gooseberry which I have grown. Ranibutan is a lovely fruit that tastes like a posh lychee.
