Default To mugush: Fruit!

The green and red balls you see in the photo are called "Tunas". Nothing whatsoever to do with the fish called tuna. (I was fooled, too at a restaurant...imagine my surprise when instead of fish I got fruit! hahaha) A tuna is fruit from a cactus. They come in all colors: yellow, green, orange (not blue, unfortunately! haha). I haven't had one in a long time so my recollection of their taste might be a bit off. They are very watery. They feel a bit like jelly in your mouth. The taste of fresh water is very strong, with a very slight touch of salt and its own particular taste that I can't exactly describe. They are very unusual fruits. I personally prefer mangoes over them. Have you ever tried a mango? What kind of fruit do they have in Pakistan??
