In Canada, I discovered a new fruit. It showed up on top of a piece of chocolate banana pie at Canmore's Sage Bistro, a small yellow fruit with a tail of leaves. It looked like a small cherry with a texture of a tomato, but it's flavor was a little sour. It was a gooseberry, a fruit found in cooler areas on the west coast of North America.
I read up on the fruit, and there is a European version that looks more like a plum, but I really liked this fruit, so when we had a buffet at Hotel Lake Louise, and they were found scattered with the dessert platters, I ate a couple of them and got extras to have other people in our group to try.
