Word of the Day: Biriba

Learnt a new word today: Biriba - the knobby green tropical fruit that almost resembles a cross between an artichoke and a pine cone, with a cream-colored custard-like flesh shaped like the seeds of a pomelo and large oval black seeds that are smooth.  Out of curiosity, I had to find out what this fruit is called in this part of the world, because it was one of my favorite fruits as I was growing up in Hong Kong, and because I've found this delicious fruit in the Chinese supermarket last night and I just had to buy it.  Apparently it is also called sweetsop and more fittingly, sugar-apple.  I couldn't wait to devour it last night and I can't wait to share the other one with my family tonight :)
