Tropical Fruits

following yesterday's post, i'm showing the pictures i took on my visit to traditional markets. since i wouldn't want to post a picture of every tropical fruits i found, might as well share it all in one shot. i'm sure you've all seen the tropical fruits pictured above. these are the typical fruits you would find in the traditional markets in jakarta, cuz they are the fruits that grow abundantly in this part of the world. however, many of you may not seen it live, or even taste it. all of them taste sweet and refreshing, perfect for the tropical hot & humid weather we have in this part of the world. we may eat them fresh, juiced, eat them with peanut sauce, make them a salad, whatever it is, they all taste wonderful. just in case you don't recognize them, the above pictures -- starting from the top left, clockwise -- are papayas (in bahasa = "pepaya" / puh-pah-ya), guavas (in bahasa = "jambu klutuk" / jahm-boo cloo-took), rose apples (in bahasa = "jambu air" / jahm-boo ah-eer), and starfruits (in bahasa = "belimbing" / buh-limb-bing)

Oh, I personally wouldn't mind pictures of every single tropical fruit you find. Some look absolutely sculptural and many have wonderful colors.
