So, I'm bored, and this is my idea of fun. We'll see if it takes off. Feel free to post photos to stump people, but make sure what you post is unambiguous (so ingredients are a better bet than composed dishes). No cheating!

I'll start things off easy:

The first is tamotillo.


Yes it is. :)

I saw the second one this week at Whole Foods but there was no tag and I wondered what it is. No clue.


Hint: these are only in season for a very short time, in spring. :)

Third is rosemary? They seem similar, but these look 'shorter'.


Close. :)

Shavy - your middle one looks like a weird radish, but it's probably not.

CS - yours is SO CLOSE to being a lychee, but something is off.

The color/shape seems off to me as well, as lychees are usually more pink and oval shaped, but it looks very similar.


It could theoretically be a lychee, if the saturation of the photo was upped, and the angle was such that the bottom of the fruit pointed away from the camera. If it's not an odd pic of a lychee, or an arubutus (strawberry tree) berry, I'm stumped.

the stem doesn't look like a lychee stem though - lychee stems are closer to just apple stems, you know? This is almost like a palm-tree shaped stem

or maybe not ....

"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

Clockwise from top right: mint, thyme, sage and rosemary.

I only see a tiny pic on my phone, so I'm excused if I'm way off.
