Cute little vegetable... Not for eat.
The reason I ventured into food technologist was I thought the world needs us to come up new ways to make our food last longer, tastier and can feed more people.
However, when I was in Cameron Highland, I saw those little melons (money fruits), which were not for eaten.
According to the store owner, those cute little melons are mend for display and decoration (and bring luck for money). They can last for about 2 years!
I think I had out from the food study & research area for too long. I am outdated already. I have no idea our biotechnology had gone that far.
Seriously, this is a great achievement. Long live, our biotech!
