Malaysian  Fruits

Malaysian Fruits

Malaysia has a tropical climate with bright sunny days and lots of rainfall throughout the year. This makes it possible for various types of tropical fruits to grow well.

The most popular fruit found here is the thorny durian, a spiky green or yellow fruit, about the size of a rugby ball. It has a very strong aroma which most foreigners dislike. The inside of the fruit is yellow or creamy white with soft, sweet pulp covering the seeds found in segments. Malaysians are very fond of this fruit. It is an expensive seasonal fruits.

Another seasonal fruit is the rambutan. It is a small, round fruit, red or yellow in color when ripe. It is yet another tasty fruit enjoyed by the local people and by foreigners. It is as large as a ping-pong ball and it has a hairy skin. It grows in bunches and is a sweet and juicy fruit with pulp and a seed inside.

The mangosteen is another popular local fruit, round in shape and the size of a tennis ball. It is deep purple or crimson when ripe and tastes very sweet and delicious. The thick, hard skin encloses the white pulp inside, in the form of a cluster. When it is in season, fruit-sellers pile the fruits on tables or string them up in long bunches which they hang around their stalls.

These three fruits are the main seasonal fruits in Malaysia. Then, there are also papayas, bananas, mangoes and pineapples found available throughout the year. There are many ways of eating them. Most of us prefer to eat them fresh but they can be fried, pickled, processed into jams, or even used in the making of cakes and ice-cream.
