What’s your favourite ‘lesser identified’ fruit? (olympic fruits disqualified)

Yangmei (Myrica/Morella rubra)

Right here’s a style description from a pair seasons in the past:

A very good buddy in San Francisco stopped by Bi-Ceremony and picked up some Yangmei for round $50/lbs if I keep in mind accurately. He was beneficiant sufficient to in a single day me some and I used to be tremendous stoked. He was in a position to get some Dongkui and likewise some Biqi.

Ever since this group purchase, I used to be excited to develop this tree due to how uncommon it’s however I’ve by no means tasted the fruit and at all times questioned behind my thoughts, what if this fruit doesn’t even style good?

Nicely, these fears had been laid to relaxation at this time and I’m stoked to report that this fruit is completely unbelievable! It’s very distinctive and there’s no different fruit prefer it! To check it to a extra widespread fruit like a strawberry can be a disservice to the Yangmei. After consuming this fruit, I can’t perceive why this fruit isn’t extra talked about and why did it take so lengthy for us to seek out out about it?

This fruit has a barely candy scent with a tinge of berry, a touch of floral notes and a background of sandalwood. I do know it sounds uncommon however to me, the scent is completely incredible.

I gave a DongKui to my daughter and he or she mentioned it was harking back to a strawberry however higher. I then gave her a Biqi and he or she preferred Biqi even higher. I really feel that the people who have tried Yangmei usually evaluate this fruit to a strawberry not as a result of it truly tastes like a strawberry however as a result of the style is refined. The sugar stage is average and the acidity can also be average. The precise Yangmei taste can also be average however the full package deal is classy.

Yangmei shouldn’t be a type of fruit with an intense taste profile however it’s incredible scent mixed with an ideal sugar acid steadiness makes it tremendous addictive. I really feel like I can eat a bucket full of those fruit.

The primary fruit I sampled was a Dongkui and the fruit had been bigger than I used to be anticipating. The Dongkui was a bit bigger than a half greenback and there was a great quantity of flesh on the fruit.  The fruit tastes prefer it smelled and it had a Brix of 10.1%.

I then sampled the Biqi which is a smaller fruit that’s a lot darker in coloration. The Biqi was barely smaller than a half greenback and had a Brix of 13.4%. The Biqi has a noticeably sweeter style and along with the flavour that the Dongkui had, the Biqi additionally had a mix of Blackberry and Pakistan mulberry. On this sampling, I most well-liked the Biqi over the Dongkui. The oldsters at Calmei or wherever these fruit got here from did an excellent job rising and processing these fruit from the standard I noticed on this small sampling.

I’m positively saving the seeds and hopefully they are going to sprout in a yr or two. Now I’m tremendous excited that I’ve a number of bushes which might be nonetheless alive. My Anh Hai and Biqi have grown fairly properly and are able to be up potted.

Listed here are some footage of the completely unbelievable tasting Yangmei fruit.
