Talks of unusual fruits with Jessica Ni

Amari Tucker (Speaker 1): What type of fruits? What type of exotic fruits do you eat?

Jessica Ni (Speaker 2): My personal favorite is starfruit. Although I’m allergic to it, I still love to eat it. It kind of tastes like an apple, and it’s really good. I also really like lychee, Bromium, and many other types of fruits.

Amari Tucker: When did you start eating? Those types of fruits?

Jessica Ni: So my mom actually grew up in South America. So I grew up eating just exotic fruits that she introduced me to. And I enjoy them.

Amari Tucker: I heard that you like to eat cactus fruit, too. How? What is that? Like? How do you like to clean them? Do you grow them or something like that, or do you just buy them from somewhere?

Jessica Ni: So we go me and my parents go to Memphis once every while and we go to this Asian market and they have like this little greenhouse. And they actually grow their own cactus fruits and many other fruits. And you just buy them from there, take them home and you just cut them open and just eat the inside seeds as well.

Amari Tucker: So you’re never like trying to grow your own or anything like that.

Jessica Ni: We’ve actually tried but none of them were ever successful.

Amari Tucker: What have your classmates said to you about you know, bringing those types of fruits to school? I know you like eating them in class.

Jessica Ni: Yes, I love snacking on them in class, but a lot of people asked to try them since they’re pretty unique. They enjoy them.

Amari Tucker: I thought there’s this one fruit I think it’s called a Snapdragon or something or is that a dragon fruit? Have you ever tried to eat one of those?

Jessica Ni: Dragon Fruit? Yes, I’m not sure what a Snapdragon is. But dragon fruits come in many types. There’s yellow dragon fruit. There’s pink dragon fruit. There’s the white one as well. I’ve tried the whites and the pink one, but not the yellow one since I’ve heard that it’s a laxative, but dragon fruit is really good.

Amari Tucker: So what would you recommend? Like any of these exotic fruits to people like which one?

Jessica Ni: Personally, the most popular one I would think would probably be the starfruit since you can actually describe its taste as an apple. And people know what an apple tastes like, but they’re still curious about how it looks. So I would definitely recommend starfruit
