What an interesting looking fruit, I don't think I've ever seen one before. --Melanie

Yes. This is a cross-section of the fruit of an epiphytic (grows on trees) cactus with night-blooming flowers. There are varieties of yellow and red with flesh either white or colored. It has a taste and texture similar to kiwi fruit. -- Victor

Looks good on the black background, Victor. And, if I am not mistaken, it would have been rather easy to get ugly reflections off the white surface. Well done on avoiding those. It has been ages since I saw these fruits... it is a type of fruit, not so? Compliments. Regards ~jnconradie
