We at WOW thought we knew all the fruits in California, but this one has us, um, stumped. Thairin Smothers just brought it–fresh-picked from a tree in Randy Barbato’s yard–into The WOW Report office for inspection. We shrugged. “Post it and see if anyone knows what it is,” he said, holding the golf ball-size harvest between thumb and finger. So we photographed it and dissected it and here it is. Jason Bryan was brave enough to taste it. “I don’t think it’s ripe yet,” he said. “It tastes like plant.” So, Report readers, please ID. “And we want recipes,” said Thairin. Ri-i-i-ight.
