Flavor Profile: Monstera Deliciosa has a delicious pineapple flavor similar to candy. It's nice and juicy with a mango/pineapple-like texture. It is sweet and tangy!
How To Eat: This delicious fruit starts to ripen at the stalk-end first, and slowly ripens all the way to the tip of the fruit, in segments. We recommend placing the fruit tip-down in a jar or glass, then allowing it to ripen on a counter. MAKE SURE TO ONLY EAT WHEN RIPE. The scales will begin to loosen and fall off. The fruit will be soft. You may be only able to eat a small section per day while it is ripening.
This fruit can cause extreme irritation to the throat if consumed before the scales fall off naturally, on their own.
First come first serve, any orders that can't be shipped this season will be reserved for next season.
