Dear Alice,
My husband attended a business dinner late last year at a very fancy traditional Japanese restaurant. At the end of the evening, as he was heading out the door, the kimono-clad proprietress presented him with a gift of a single piece of fruit. It was like a large orange but with a weird pear shape. I’ve rarely tasted anything so delicious. I looked but I couldn’t find it in any store. Can you please find out what the heck that fruit is
?
