Gosh, it looks like it’s going to be another busy day here on Ambergris Caye in Belize. What will I do to pass the time? I know! It’s time for another Grumpy Quiz, in which you get to prove that faithfully checking this blog every day and hanging on my every word has turbocharged your brainpower.
Question — What do you call this fruit? (And I don’t mean the kid in the hammock. He’s totally straight.)
We found it at a local farmer’s market at Belmopan in Belize and were so intrigued by its color and fearsome shape that we knew we had to try it. It was delish — kind of like a mild kiwi with very soft, juicy (and seedy) flesh. Gotta watch out for the juice, though. It’ll permanently stain anything it gets on bright red.
If you think you know what it is, suggest a name. If you are right, you will earn the Grump’s eternal respect, a prize worth more than all the styrofoam peanuts at Hobby Lobby.
Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for breakfast. I think I’ll have the lobster.

The Grump may be taking a break from the office, but he never takes a break from you — his brilliant, inquisitive, and loyal readers. Feel free to post questions as usual and Grumpy will answer them as soon as he can. For express service, send a bottle of rum.
Bonus Grumpy Fact!
The Belizian city of Belmopan (population: 7,100) is the world’s smallest capital. You will learn such valuable nuggets only by reading the Grumpy Gardener!
