Fruits season is here!

Middle of the year is for fruits. Mangosteen, rambutans and durians! We bought mangosteen and rambutan recently. These fruits require a prolonged dry spell to ripen.

Such a taste.... year after year.

the hairy fruits


  1. Those are really interesting fruits, I've never seen anything like them before. I wish I could try them.

  2. Oh, I love our local fruits. Got some mangosteen from our pasar malam for only RM10 for 3kg. Another mistake I made was to eat a whole bunch of rambutan on my own. I lost my voice the next day ~ most likely due to heatiness coz by too much of rambutans.

    Now I am hoping to recover soon coz I have been eyeing the durians!!! Hope it won't take too long ~ yum, yum durian!!!

  3. I have traveled in Vietnam and Cambodia a few times and they have a fruit like the Rambutan that I loved!

  4. Oh I'm so jealous! I spent some time in Southeast Asia a couple years ago and fell in love with these fruits. Rambutans are my favorite!

  5. It is so interesting to see what you grow.

    Middle of the year is about time fruits ready to be picked. They need prolonged dry spell. A friend was saying about though condition most plants and trees has been programmed to force flowering and fruiting...

    When I was a kid, old folks did the unusual thing of slashing the trunk of large trees to induce flowering. They were 100 % right!!

    These fruits are very nice, rambutan being sweet and watery, mangosteen being sweet with a touch of sour taste.

    I havent tasted any durian yet so far... hmm
