One place I enjoy visiting when I am in Michigan is Randazzo's. It is a very nice market that specializes in fresh fruits and vegetables. They also have a small bakery, a deli department, and a fresh meat department. It is a veritable feast for the eyes. I wish I had thought to take my camera while I was there so I could include some pictures of all the lovely fruits and vegetables so nicely displayed.

It's always fun to see unusual things there. This time I saw bundles of fresh dandelion leaves and tiny baby artichokes about the size of lemons. I also saw these and couldn't resist buying a few to try:

Would you like to guess what they are?
I'll give the answer in my next post.

    Mango? I wrote a one word comment and was told my comment was too short. I hope this is long enough. Mango – my favorite fruit in the Eastern Hemisphere. I would choose Strawberries in the western hemisphere.

    The fruit looks like passion fruit – the yellow skinned variety.

    Nope, it’s not passion fruit.

    Yes, it was Dan Cuthbertson. His dad and his sister, Bonnie and her family go to Megan and Jim’s church.

    Nope, it’s not Mango. Stay tuned to find out what the answer is!

    Let’s try guava? They look pretty whatever they are. Glad you had a nice trip.

    Could they possibly be coffee beans?

    Is it quince? It reminds me of the fruit on the quince bushes that my grandmother had in her yard.

    The look of the fruit reminds me of a picture in one of my vegetable gardening books…could it possibly be Chayote? Not sure what it is used for, though; I’ll look forward to finding out the answer.

    Hannah, Judy, Vikki, and Sharon: No, it’s not chayote, quince, coffee beans, or guava. All are good guesses though.

    Well, let’s go with something more normal. The skin looks similar to an an apple – like a Granny Smith. The shape isn’t typical for apple, but could this be some new or not well known variety of apple.

    OR, I saw a different type of kiwi in one of our stores lately. I can’t remember exactly what is was called, and I can’t even remember exactly what it looked like (since it was about a month ago). So, how about that?

    Oh, I finally found the kiwi variety online that I was looking for. It was Kiwi Berries.

    Sorry, Sharon, it’s neither kiwi berries or an unusual apple. I’ll post the answer soon.

    Hmmm, would it be papaya?

    No, Hannah, it’s not papaya. Answer coming soon.

    Is it possible that we’re looking at olives?

    Kristen, you are absolutely correct! I tell about it in a newblog post –
