For the longest time, I only knew the name of this fruit as 蓮霧 (lian wu). Actually I probably know this better as the Taiwanese pronunciation of lian bu. I remember eating this fruit in Taiwan. It’s one of my favorite fruits. Although the English name is wax apple, it tastes nothing like an apple. I don’t think I can compare it to another fruit. It’s crunchy, but it has a soft stringy texture. It is also really sweet.
