Spice Zee Nectaplum, My True Love

Oh, sigh. Every summer, the Spice Zee Nectaplum makes its appearance at the farmers' market, and I fall in love all over again.

It's just the most wonderful summer fruit... juicy and sweet, beautiful, and enormous! The colors are so lovely and understated - pale, dusty pinks and yellows with an occasional darker blush. Spice Zee Nectaplum (out of respect, I always address it by its full name) satisfies my esthetic needs as well as my tummy needs.

Spice Zee Nectaplum is a tender fruit, easily bruised, and so you must treat it with loving care. Once perfectly ripe, you will be rewarded with a sublime experience of yumminess.

During the tragically short Spice Zee Nectaplum season, I probably eat 2-3 of these every day. I really do love them. Here, you see me gazing lovingly upon my beloved. Sadly, now Spice Zee has already left me. Until we meet again... fare thee well, my love!
