Unusual Fruits

John has been giving weekly private English lessons to Noemi who lives up the street. Noemi gave him these unusual fruits as a gift. The first two are cashew. The nut is actually inside the nut-shaped enclosure and the rest is edible fruit. The substance between the nut and the outer shell is poisonous, I hear similar to poison ivy. I have never tried to get the nut out of there. I completely appreciate the high cost of cashew nuts for the labor involved to retrieve the nut. The fruit that grows below the nut is supposed to be delicious. I plan on trying some later today. The other fruit is a special type of banana that we have never seen. It is the size of two medium sized bananas together. Noemi says it tastes like a regular banana. I will wait for it to turn yellow before I give it a try.
