No, not exactly. More like red and long green horns…..
The other day when I was walking in Chinatown, I came across a fruit I’d never seen before:
Its devil fruit. Devil Fruit has a deep red/ hot pink color on its exterior matched with green slender leaves that extend like thorns.
“Does it taste like a chile?”
“No, more like a kiwi,” said the fruit stand attendant.
“So, its somewhere between a mango and a kiwi in consistency and taste?”
“Yes,” the fruit stand attendant now brandishing a pitchfork and growing pointy red horns.
For $7.50 per pound, Devil Fruit must be more of a delicacy, an exotic fruit to spice things up.
Sidenote: Devil Fruit (悪魔の実 Akuma no Mi) is also a fictional fruit from the manga and anime series of One Piece by Eiichirō Oda that, when consumed, gives the consumer a power or special trait. Apparently called “Cursed Fruit” in the American version…..uh, is this to not offend our delicate American sensibilities? hm I think we can handle “Devil,” I mean after all, we seem to have elected George Bush as the President.
