My First Taste of Ber: a North Indian Jujube

Ber Fruit

There have been quite a few street carts around here lately selling these green fruits. From a distance, I thought that maybe they were limes or even green tomatoes. Instead, they are a fruit called ber, which is from North India and is in season right now. They had a firm flesh, making it bit like an apple or pear with a single small stone inside. But the taste was also pretty delicate, and nowhere as tangy nor juicy as I had hoped. Well, it was interesting to try.
