Help me identify these foods

I bought these at the grocery store yesterday, but everything was labelled in french at the store and I can't remember what they were called. Can you help me identify these fruits & veggies, and how they would generally be prepared?

And in a more general sense, is there an art to picking out produce? I feel like I'm just picking things at random, and all I can really go by is my general knowledge of the glycemic index.

Is this question for real? LOL :) You have never heard of an artichoke, parsley, mango, or longan? Thanks for making me laugh! Artichokes a delicious, but prickly, you have to cut the rough edges with scissors. Steam them, add some olive oil. Good luck with your produce adventures!

The last one looks like kale, but I cannot say for sure.

  1. Cilantro/coriander
  2. Artichoke. Click here on how to prepare.
  3. I think VB could be right with Loquat if it looks like this inside
  4. Grenadilla (you answered that yourself)
  5. Mango
  6. Kale - simply saute this with some coconut oil or butter. Delish!

I think that pic 1 may be flat-leaf parsley as opposed to coriander. The pic is not great but the leaves are slightly longer and more deeply serrated than you commonly see with coriander, and as someone who adores coriander (/cilantro) and abhors parsley, I have grow used to noticing the tiny differences. For your sake, I hope, illogically, that I'm wrong and it is coriander, because parsley is garsley.

Edit: oo, I don't know though, that front stalk that's escaping looks rounder-leaved. Perhaps it really is coriander, in which case you could blitz it up with garlic and chillies and make it into an amazing base for a meat sauce. Or eat it in a salad, or tear it over a curry... hundreds of uses, it's gorgeous stuff.
