One variety I just bought this year is called Pixwell. It's one of the greenish fruiting ones but has a taste in the middle. The skin has been described as leathery. I wouldn't say that ever, mostly because it's a turn off for most people to try the fruit. I would say chewy is more accurate but you're not supposed to chew the skin at all. Bitting into the berry releases the sweet flavor into your mouth but there is a bitter flavor that comes from the skin. Chewing only makes it worse.
The plants I have all decided to flower at 6 inches tall which makes them incredibly easy to grow. So far this is one of the easiest fruits I've grown. I can't wait for next year when I get a bigger harvest.
