Tamarillos & a Rainbow of Carrots from the Keahou Farmer's Market

Here is a recent haul from our local farmer's market. The rainbow colored carrots had an almost peppery snap and the Tamarillos (also known as tree tomatoes) were savory, juicy and a little sour. Yum. If you get a chance to try one, don't pass it up. There are many ways to eat it, but the grower advised us to snip off the end with kitchen shears and suck out the gooey centers. Lots of fun. What is your latest food discovery?

I finally tried the dragonfruit at our farmer's market here on Maui. Very tasty! That Pineapple upside down cake you made looks divine-may have to try that sometime soon.
