The Voices Ebullient Exotic Experiment


Junior Kayla Perly says,“yuck, I would only eat a Pepino Melon if I am stuck on an island with no other food.” Perley explains, “it was not sweet, and the texture reminded me of a fish”


Summer is around the corner and many new and unusual fruits are in season. Triton voice reporters tried out a number of these fruits and, have created a review. The Triton G period journalism tried Pepino Melon, dragonfruit, Grapefruit, and a Papaya. This gathered eleven thoughts and opinions on which fruits were the best and, which fruits were the least popular.


Junior Glory Trelfa disagrees.


“The Pepino Melon kind of tasted like honeydew and, banana, it’s texture was like a cantaloupe and honeydew, it was kind of good” said Trelfa. “It was my second favorite fruit even though the dragon fruit was my favorite, I wouldn’t buy this again only because I didn’t like the aftertaste. The dragon fruit was my favorite because it had a light tanginess and the seeds are earthly, the seeds gave it a slight crunch. The grapefruit had an overpowering orange flavor. The grapefruit was my least favorite, and I would never buy this again. The papaya was wet, and a slightly fruity mush. The texture was like a really soft pear.”


Junior Kaia Cohen said, “the Pepino Melon was subtly sweet, fresh, slimey like honeydew. The dragonfruit don’t taste like much but the seeds were earthly, it was crunchy, I would buy it ”, says Cohen.” The grapefruit was sweet and tart, it had a juicy texture, and I would buy it. The papaya was unique like grass, and I would buy this, it was soft and I would buy this. My favorite was the Grapefruit.”


Confused Junior Karoline Jacobs says, “the grapefruit was very sour. I don’t know if I liked it or hate it. It had a soft texture.” In response to the papaya Jacobs said, “Nope. Baby food.”


Julia Boyle responded to the fruit by saying, “The melon texture was too squishy, there was not enough sweetness or flavor. The dragon was sweet but watery. The grapefruit was 10/10 and I would recommend grapefruit over oranges all day.” Boyle said “No thanks, tastes like socks,” to the papaya.

From tasting like socks, to grass, to fish, the Pepino Melon was voted the least favorite in the G period Journalism class. From tasting like sweet and, tangy orange like the Grapefruit was voted the favorite of the class.Well there you have it folks, you, have heard it first from Journalists in G period.
