One of the aspects of life in Lebanon is the fact that your senses are constantly bombarded with stimuli. Walking in the street a few steps, the stink of a garbage dump will be followed by the heady fragrance of a jasmine bush; you never know what to expect; you accept it as a reality.
To go from the general to the specific, I was in the garden the other day and discovered this fruit; or at least I think it is a fruit. It is a lovely orange color, and inside the flesh is similar to a large raspberry.
I hope it does not contain a potent poison, as I had a few to try; pleasant taste, mildly sweet, berry-like; the climbing vine has big purple and white flowers.
Anybody know what it is?
