I’m a fruit person…I love it, I crave it, I must have it! One great thing about living in the sweltering Vietnam climate is that the fruit is great all year around! I would walk through the markets and my eyes would pop seeing so many different kinds of colorful fruit! Vendors walked the streets daily selling whatever was in season. The hardest part for me was to figure out what half of the fruit was as much of it was new to my American eyes and palette.
To assist you as you travel through Vietnam and SE Asia - here’s a little more information about the fruit that you see. Don’t be afraid to spend the spare change, haggle on a price and try some of these delicious new or old fruits! (I’ve included the English and Vietnamese name on all of the items!)
I love Bumpy Apples! The hard outer shells are peeled off and expose a firm apple/pear like fruit that’s very sweet.
