Looking for some new things to eat? Tired of the same old vegetable rack at your grocery store? Are pineapples passe? If this describes your state of mind, then prepare to get exotic with these strange fruits and weird vegetables from around the globe!

Sorry, no potatoes this time. Break out your bucket list and make some travel plans. You can't call yourself a true culinary adventurer until you've tried every exotic fruit on this list!

If something that looks like a meteorite explosion, a Fibonacci sequence or called "Ugli fruit" and "Gac," is your cup of tea, you weird fruit, then scroll along and check the most unusual vegetables!
