The canistel fruit is interesting - tastes something like a sweet potato or pumpkin, but not exactly. The bread with coconut was interesting and something different! I'm not leaving any stars on my review because it took about an hour and a half to bake. I did substitute coconut flour for half the flour, so maybe that was the reason.
