Japanese cuisine is one of the most diverse in the world but for various historical and geographical reasons, the Japanese never got round to making fruit a big part of their, admittedly very healthy, diet. This is the reason that even today, fruit is considered a very good, very expensive gift for very special occasions. If you want to offer your friends such a rare gift and can't get your hands on a real Japanese orange, the Orange Puzzle is the next best thing!
What's more, it's a gift you can make yourself. Easy enough for even a 7-year-old to put together, the Orange Puzzle is made up of nine slices of perfectly detailed, juicy orange, plus a cup-shaped orange skin to hold them, all made of brightly colored plastic. Fun as a toy for all ages and a reminder that one culture's commonplace and mundane can be another culture's special and exotic!
