Monstera (monstera deliciosa)

An edible fruit with a flavour similar to a cross between banana and pineapple, and originating in the jungles of Mexico.

If found, the fruit should only be eaten if completely ripe, when its rind starts to disintegrate - otherwise, it can cause irritation to the mouth and throat. This can be induced by wrapping the fruit in paper and keeping it for a few days, when unwrapped the "plate" skin should fall away.

The pulp can be used in fruit salad, to flavour ice cream or liquidised, and strained, to make a summer drink.
