Sometimes I think I enjoy these fruits as much for their looks as the taste, as my fruit bowls and fruit platters make me smile and remind me I am doing a sensual, tropical winter life again this year.
This is some kind of coconut concoction, and we haven't tried it yet, but it looks intriquing dressed in those leaves which I am guessing are banana tree leaves all nestled on a Mandarin paper.
My shades-of -yellow fruit bowl of bananas, mangos, lemons!
We had to ask a local how to eat these things... the good stuff is a gooey thing in the middle.
Okay the organic tomatoes above and avocodos here are not tropical fruits, but we mix a little bit of everything in. We even occasionally have organic apples, but they are imported, so expensive, thus we don't get them too often.
Thus, that is my little photo essay on tropical fruit. We've had more, but I don't always get a photo of each thing we try. The popular ( and smelly) durian is not my thing and some look too strange to eat regularly.
