Buddha Head

December 9, 2010

is a delicious fruit that you can enjoy during the winter in Taiwan.

It looks like a Buddha’s head, hence the odd name. It’s surprisingly very soft, and you can open it up with your hands, kinda similar to how you would open up a pork bun or a burrito.

There’s a bunch of fruity meat and seed inside, and it tastes like yogurt.

The best way to choose a ripe Buddha head is by picking it up and feeling how soft and dense it feels. My friend says “the softer and denser the better”.

And since you’re in Taiwan, try haggling with the vendor! Sometimes it works. Very often they pretend that they don’t understand what you’re saying. : )
