Tropical Fruits of Malaysia: Have you tasted them?

The tropical and equatorial weather of Malaysia, its rich rainfall and fertile soils gives it’s a rich spoil of fruits and ones that are so exotic that you feel like something is missing in your diet when you are unable to taste it anymore. And the best part is that most of these fruits are available all year around and the monsoon period is the period of rich hauls both in terms of numbers and variety.

I have always been pro fruits and hence whenever I am visiting Malaysia, I simply gorge on them. It is my way of staying healthy while traveling and staying cool in the tropical weather. Some of the famous fruits of Malaysia are the Mangosteen, Mango, Pomelo, Papaya, Banana, Rambutan, Longan, Guava and Pineapple. My personal favorites are the Mangosteen, Pomelo, Guava and Papaya. Cold Pomelo with some dried plum and salt is like my favorite way to forget the heat and the humidity. Even ice cold Guavas are nice. The Mangosteen, a seasonal fruit is a hot favorite with many for its succulent taste and its sweet flavors.
