Eggfruit! Found at the La Reine Farmers' Market on St. Croix. It's powdery, sweet and great in smoothies!

April 27th, 2011

St. Croix's tropical climate matched with its unique terrain provide a beautiful array of tropical crops.  To buy this great local produce Crucians shop at La Reine Farmers' Market, a small open air venue located towards the west side of the island. They know to come early, so when we arrived at around 8am things were already looking pretty sparse. Towards the back though a booth caught my eye... a bright orange strange shaped fruit which formed a perfect heart when sliced open.  It's called Eggfruit, or Canistel, and grows only in warm climates.  These weird wonderful fruits can be hard to find commercially in the states, but according to the farmer selling them, make fantastic milkshakes.  People use this strange small-grapefruit-sized fruit in a variety of sweets like breads, ice creams, pies, and the a quick search of the internet resulted in something called "eggfruitnog"!

They have a beautiful bright orange color....
... that continues all the way through the whole fruit!
While these Central American fruits when their ripe have a strange powdery consistency kind of like the yolk of a hard boiled egg. They have a sweet almost custardy flavor and low acidity so you can mix it with milk without worrying about it curdling. These weren't quite ripe so I unfortunately didn't get to play around with them much in St. Croix and customs has some stern words about trying to bring them back to the mainland.
