Tacaco

Tacaco (Sechium Tacaco) is a crawling vine that grows in tropical regions. It produces a small green football shaped vegetable that´s edible. You boil them for about 10 minutes, peel off the skin, and cut it half. Don´t eat the pit, BTW, it´s bitter as hell.

 

SB600 from top, at 1/4 power. Shot in a strobist lunch box, lined with typing paper, same technique as the cake photos for Bootcamp II.
