The rare fruits that I saw in supermarkets or neighborhood stores.

I remember a time when I would buy all the rare fruits that I saw in supermarkets or neighborhood stores.

  • Kumquats: They are like tiny, oval tangerines that are very difficult to peel. Having tangerines and oranges, why these kumquats that there is no god to peel them :)?

Some that I would like to try and have never had the chance to do are tamarind, durian, mangosteen and jackfruit. I am fascinated by the colors and shapes of fruits and vegetables.
