under commission from colombian tropical and exotic fruits producer/exporter ocati, spanish joan rojeski studio introduces a useful tool to accompany the introduction of a lesser known fruit. the ‘granadilla’ is a plastic straw and spoon tool created for eating a fruit of the same name. unknown to a majority of the european market, the fruit is most easily comparable (in regards to physical characteristics) to the pomegranate.
‘granadilla’ straw for ocati
‘granadilla’, greatly lessens the learning curve for eating the tasty treat. the design, though very simple, is derived from the subtly carved leaves that accompany the fruit. to use, the tool’s carved end is jabbed into the granadilla’s outer surface. after wiggling it around a bit to break the inner film which contains the goodies, the user is then free to suck directly from the straw. to get the final bits, one can break open the shell and use the carved end as a small spoon. ‘granadilla’ was designed by joan rojeski studio for ocati tropical fruits.
