Trying Exotic Fruit In Hawaii

Have you ever heard of a soursop, or breadfruit or ice cream beans? We didn’t know about these exotic tropical fruits until we lived here for awhile and then we decided to try them..and a bunch more for this video to show you what they are, where they come from and what are their benefits..while we also do a little “Survivor-esqe” tasting of things that look a bit strange and we don’t know what to expect!
We purchased all of these tropical fruits at the Keauhou Farmers Market
