Frozen Tomatoes

I've just been given a frozen tomato to eat. Now, before it's defrosted. Apparently this is very common in the north-east, where you can freeze stuff by leaving it outside for 5 minutes in winter, but I never got frozen tomatoes to eat in Harbin.

Anyone else been given frozen tomatoes to eat, or is it just me. It's nice enough, just plain weird . . .

When I was travelling in the Northeast during one winter I bought some fruit that was naturally frozen outdoors and told how to eat it. I wasn't sure I had understood properly so I ate it in two ways . At this point I can't even remember the fruit (probably pears or maybe persimmons). I put one in hot boiled water from the hotel thermos and the other I just gnawed on frozen. Neither were very appetizing or seemingly worth the effort flavour-wise but was an interesting experience.

tomato is short plant,

but that frozen "tomato"you mentioned should come from big tree.

in chinese :

tomato is XiHongShi.

FrozenTomato is Dong Shi zi.

Not Frozen tomato is Shi zi .

this Frozen fruit 's tree can be very easy to find in beijing.

maybe ,its name is persimmon(shi zi).

so you ate Frozen tomato or frozen persimmon?

I only ate Frozen persimmon once...,because........

in a nice HK movie,a lady take a skep of frozen persimmon to her

fancy man in a snowing day.........

Frozen tomato dipped in condensed milk sounds good.

I'm going to have to disagree with you there . . .

If he's talking about the condensed milk stuff that comes with zha man tou, then I'd have to agree, it sounds delicious! But then again, that stuff would taste good on anything.
