What's up, everybody? We did a video about Asian snacks, and a lot of you guys liked it.
But let's get into something a little bit more organic.
That's really in right now.
Asian fruits!
Oh là là! Au naturel!
One of our first Asian fruits: Kumquats.
Usually you would peel the skin off an orange before you eat it, Kumquats, you can actually just bite into 'em whole.
It's like the size of a grape but the texture of an orange.
Ok, kind of sour.
Normally, I don't eat kumquat on a regular basis, but I do have it often in my boba.
Star fruit.
It's crazy to me how it's a perfect star!
It's like an alien tentacle if the aliens attacked and it would go into your brain like...
Whoa, snap, look at that!
Mama always told me I'd be a star one day.
It's like the Super Mario star.
And the stinkiest of them all, the infamous, Durian.
Durian is like the porcupine of the Asian fruit world, it has a built-in defense mechanism.
For those of you who have had durian, you know that it smells a lot worse than it tastes.
So what we had to do was bring in Vietnamese expert: Richiele.
Are you ready?
One, two, three! (Vietnamese)
Oh, shi-, alien concoction!
This feels like ice cream right now, like, It's kind of like creamy, like custard.
I might just have to, oh!
It doesn't taste like anything I've ever had.
It's sweet, it has kind of an aftertaste.
It's kinda like banana, custard.
Fart banana pineapple custard?
But it's still good, though.
Asians eat weird things, but, it's so good.
Next stop, mangosteen!
I had this in Thailand, it's really good!
So mangosteen is a really awesome fruit that's grown exclusively in Asia.
The leaves are so hard.
It's almost like comical.
Almost feels fake, like, how hard it is.
You could like squeeze it or somethin'.
We got our, ugh, producer, Andrew here.
Give it for the queen, David!
The queen wants her mangosteen!
God save the queen!
Passion fruit.
A lot of you guys are familiar with the flavor of passion fruit, but how many of you guys have actually seen a real passion fruit?
I don't know if we're cutting this properly.
Whoa! The guts...
Hold up, hold up...
You can see why they keep it a flavor!
I think they gave it a nice name because they knew it looked really weird on the inside.
A little sour, there's a lot of juice and a lot of seeds.
I could really see this doing well in a smoothie or a drink.
Need some passion in your life? Get some passion fruit!
Just so you think that we're not wasting fruit, we actually have a guy on the side, named Tim, who's eating all of the leftovers.
The word "longan" is actually in Cantonese, longan.
Longan means dragon eye.
It's really easy to get these confused with litchis, but they're actually a little different.
I just remember eating these growing up and just being like, yo, this taste hella Asian.
I'm open, I'm open!
Nah, I'm "Parmelo Anthony."
Ah, man! You never pass!
Basically, the pomelo is like the Asian grapefruit.
You can't hurt a pomelo's feelings, they got thick skin!
It's not as sour as a grapefruit, actually.
Dragon fruit!
This is a very expensive fruit, about eight bucks.
Wooo! So pretty!
Really juicy, a lot of little seeds you could eat.
It actually has a very light taste.
It's not super sweet, it's not super sour.
It's really soft, actually.
It's really tender!
It can weigh up to like twenty pounds each, though this one weighs about ten pounds.
And they make good jackfruit chips.
Wooo! Beautiful! Look at that!
Actually, I think we just cut it wrong,
it was supposed to be cut down this way.
I don't know if we're cutting it right at all.
Pull the meat out right here, that's crazy.
It's like an escape pod, just puu!
It's good! I like this, I like this a lot!
It's a little chewy, but I like it cause it's kind of like a mango-ish, apple-ish? I don't know, it's good though.
Next stop, the Korean pear.
AKA, the 배 (in Korean)
The key to remember is the cellophane wrapping. This is huge.
The Western pear is actually a lot softer, and this is actually really crunchy.
You're gonna get this or oranges for a dessert after a Asian meal.
We don't eat ice cream.
Refreshing! Hmm!
Next up, these little hairy creatures, rambutan.
Actually, it's the softest, kinda melts in your mouth.
Little tart, little tangy.
Kinda has a similar consistency of, like, mangosteen.
This is of the same family as litchi, and we were gonna to do litchi, but it's out of season, so we couldn't get it.
Heart-shaped artichoke.
Kinda reminds me of a mini durian.
Do not eat the skin or the seeds. They could be bad for you, people.
That's really sweet. Goodness, this is good!
I would say it's a mixture between a banana, a papaya, a pineapple, all mushed together.
If you're used to eating a banana, this is a nice switch-up.
(Now you know your Asian fruits!)
I think we've consumed definitely our weekly allotment of vitamin C.
Most of these were new to me today.
I feel more Asian. Thanks, guys!
