Best reference question of the week:
Sally was greeted by two women this afternoon who brought her a fruit and wanted to know what it was called. (See above. They only brought one, though.) She did not know, but did some quick searching and found it, amazingly!
Here is the answer: it is a jiló, and grows much like eggplant, according to WorldCrops. It is native to Africa; slaves took it with them to Brazil, and both cultures now have several ways to cook it. If you have some and would like to cook it, this Food52 Q&A will help you out.
We look forward to more patrons bringing vegetable and fruit conundrums to us.
Librarians, here to solve all your fruit conundrums.
You KNOW that’s right.
