Tree tomatoes

You cut off the bottom and squeeze out the seeds and the flesh. They’re not very sweet, or very sour, or very anything. The seeds aren’t crunchy like passion fruit, but soft like large roe. The juice is bright red and looks like it would make a nasty stain. I’ve heard that you either love them or hate them, but I feel pretty neutral: I won’t be buying them in the market if there’s other fruit around, but I wouldn’t turn one down.

EDIT March 10: Ok, the most distinctive aspect of the flavor is a nice sourness. I have come to like these strange things, and I will in fact buy them at a market.
