Tea made from this beautiful fruit is both healthy and delicious. There is a legend about Queen Victoria offering a reward of 100 pounds sterling to anyone who could deliver to her the fresh fruit. This is why it is sometimes referred to as ‘Queen of fruit.’ The journalist and gourmand R. W. Apple, Jr. once said of the fruit, “No other fruit, for me, is so thrillingly, intoxicatingly luscious…I’d rather eat one than a hot fudge sundae, which for a big Ohio boy is saying a lot.
