  • - 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.

  • Grap-orange

  • Ok, kinda sour.

  • Normally, I don't eat kumquat on a regular basis, but I do have it often in my boba.

  • KumquatStayquat

  • 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?

  • (Vietnamese) One, two, three!

  • Urgggg!

  • 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.

  • Aey!

  • Give it for the queen, David!

  • The queen wants her mangosteen!

  • Aghhhhhh!

  • 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!

  • Ohhh!

  • 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.

  • Longans.

  • 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.

  • Pomelo.

  • 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.

  • Ughhhh!

  • 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!

  • Jackfruit.

  • 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.

  • Squishy.

  • 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.

  • Cherimoya.

  • 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!

  • We hope that you saw some of your favorite fruits, as well as some new fruits that you've never seen before.
