New fruits and a loofah


I know, you are probably thinking, "We saw this photo before."
But actually what I bought at the shuk two weeks ago were different kinds of fruit and some of them are already out of season.
And today I splurged (because of a family party coming up) and bought a few spiky pink-and-green  pitaya (dragon fruit), guava, and carambola (star fruit).

Also of interest on my table here are a pomelit (a small pomela), kiwi, figs, pomegranates, and "a personal watermelon."
Oh, and a loofah
It's a fibrous plant seed pod.
After amusing the grandkids with it (e.g. bopping them on the head), I'm going to cut it into smaller pieces and try to use one like a sponge in the shower.

Here is the entrance to Beersheva's Municipal Market where all these fun fruits came from today.

Lovely fruit, many of which I've never tasted. Hope you enjoy your loofah.

The fresh fruits are always yummy. Some are new fruits to me, I've never heard of pitaya or carambola. I hope you have a fun family party. Enjoy your week ahead!

Some of this fruits may come from Star Wars for what I know: it looks more alien than exotic!

Quite a bit different from Makane Yehuda!
