Life in Georgia is full of unfamiliar fruit.
First there were the ones which looked like big black raspberries or a bit like loganberries or very big cultivated blackberries. They fell all over the pavements leaving a sticky black stain. I decided they were mulberries.
Recently there have been some small bright red things, a bit like very small plum tomatoes but also a bit like hips. They came and went rather quickly so I never got to try them.
Now there are these brown things a bit like acorns. I was a bit suspicious they were really acorns, and asked the stall lady who's a friend of mine by now with my stupid questions. No, she said they were fruit, and you could just eat them, without sugar. Then she gave me a little bag full for a present.
They taste like apples but have a plum stone. A bit like crab apples but not sour, just crunchy.
At the moment we also have a new crop of hazelnuts, chestnuts (which seems very early to me, since they never appear till November 5 in the UK) pomegranates and persimmons, as well as all the usual apples, pears, grapes etc.
