Desert Fruit
Originally uploaded by khyri
A few days ago, our Head of Botany stopped me and asked if I'd ever eaten saguaro fruit. When I said no, he rushed off to try and find me one, but no luck. Today, I come in to find this on my desk. Thanks, George!

Well, I suppose it could have been worse! He might have said, "Have you ever eaten dog poo!!!" (lol)

I wish I had a Botany Head to leave obscure fruits on my desk. *envy*

So, besides being a beautiful fruit, how did you think it tasted?

It was quite bland. More like a pomegranate taste with a strawberry consistency than anything.

I enjoy barrel cactus fruit myself. I've helped myself to it on a few occasions when I see that it's ripe.
