Contradictions In The Quran: Foods In Hell.

Question: What will be the food for the people in Hell?
Foul pus as in 69:36 or bitter 88:6 or a tree as in 37:64
69:36 "Nor hath he any food except the corruption from the washing of wounds,
وَلَا طَعَامٌ إِلَّا مِنْ غِسْلِينٍ
88:6 No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari'
لَّيْسَ لَهُمْ طَعَامٌ إِلَّا مِن ضَرِيعٍ
37:63 For We have truly made it (as) a trial for the wrong-doers.
إِنَّا جَعَلْنَاهَا فِتْنَةً لِّلظَّالِمِينَ
37:64 For it is a tree that springs out of the bottom of Hell-Fire:
إِنَّهَا شَجَرَةٌ تَخْرُجُ فِي أَصْلِ الْجَحِيم
37:65 The shoots of its fruit-stalks are like the heads of devils:
طَلْعُهَا كَأَنَّهُ رُؤُوسُ الشَّيَاطِينِ
37:66 Truly they will eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith.
فَإِنَّهُمْ لَآكِلُونَ مِنْهَا فَمَالِؤُونَ مِنْهَا الْبُطُونَ
The food in hell is foul pus or a tree.
My answer: The fruits of these trees could contain foul pus and tastes bitter.
