Can someone identify this fruit?

What to eat and drink, what not to eat or drink, food preferences, allergies, and (why not?) recipes for Turkish cooking!

Can someone identify this fruit?

Post by bodanzarama » Sat Oct 31, 2009 3:31 pm

I was recently in the village of Mustafapasa and a local man had a wagon full of these small, grap-shaped fruits. Inside it's powdery and sweet. I then saw them in a farmer's market. Can anyone help? Thanks very much!

I think it is the fruit of eleagnus angustifloria or Russian Olive. We buy them to grow as seed but I did eat one once and it was exactly as you have described.
