I am looking for the name of this thing fruit (or vegetable):
Look familiar, pretty sure I've tried it. Has a crunchy feel and sour taste. Don't know the name though.
Well it is not a carambola.
Can you get a better, closer picture, can you cut one open? Would knowing the country it's in help? The leaves look similar to tomato leaves, but this is a tree?
Hmm, where did you obtain the image, that might help?
Does look tomato like, but lacks the very sturdy stems and branches that tomato has.
Looks to me also to be a bit like a fig, one of the smaller varieties, not really a 'tree'
Okay, I will bite.
Though, aren't UFO threads banned?
It's made in Greece by a friend of mine.
I've searched the internet and the cape of this fruit does look similar but the cape is I think much smaller than this one, right?
Ground-Cherries? (physalis) Sometimes they look like gooseberries when unripe. They use them a lot here in europe, and would grow well in Greece.
Theres 50-100 varieties too.
Ha! We were picking wild Gooseberries and Saskatoon berries in the woods yesterday. Had some on my French toast this morning.
Could be but did you notice that these are more round shaped than elliptic shaped like the normal ones?
Yeah, but its the only thing with the maple-like leaves I could think of, and theres so many varieties, it could be any shape when young.
Separate names with a comma.
