Strange Fruit

This post is not about the famous Billie Holiday song. I am going to introduce you to a rare and refreshing fruit of of a name unbeknownst to me, hence the title, "strange fruit". It is a cross between pineapple and watermelon. I had the pleasure of tasting it a few months ago and I found it yesterday on a fruit vendor's cart in the main Falmouth market in Trelawny. I don't know in which areas of Jamaica it is grown but I intend to find out. The piece pictured was fresh with no hint of sugar. Needless to say it was delicious and served its purpose on a quiet and hot Saturday afternoon.
