Cockfruit is one of the most infamous fruits that grows in Brazil.
Though its flavor is said to be sublime, there are few who would eat the fruit publicly owing to its shape. A social stigma also applies to those who would buy and dice the fruit for less obscene eating, as their act resembles castration.
That’s all changing with the creation of self contained fields and factories that grow and process the fruit into juice or snacks all behind an opaque wall where citizens of the predominantly Catholic country needn’t see the salacious ripened foodstuffs.
Cockfruit is named for its first proponent, Johnny Cockfruitseed, who traveled the world planting cockfruit trees. He is currently under arrest on obscenity charges.
