another fruit question - Lulo (naranjilla sp?)

zim | Feb 11, 2002 09:23 AM

I was at a colombian place this weekend and saw they were offering a number of fruit juices (either mixed in milk or water) One of these was "lulo". The whole menu had spanish translations and "lulo" was translated as "lulo(naranjilla)" I had never heard of it, and asked the waiter what it was. He told me it was like a big green orange only more sour. Thinking this might be my beloved indian mosambi I quickly ordered two(both in water and in milk). What arrived was something bright (pistachio) green, thick (both in water and milk)kinda pulpy and definitely not a mosambi. It was tart but not in a citric lime/orange way. Anybody have any info on this one?
