tropical fruits: who KNEW? Aug. 25 2012
By jeaniesrq - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This handy pocket-guide has detailed photos of tropical fruit as they look close-up & of the trees on which they grow. They cover 40 fruits in depth; I especially enjoyed learning the names of these fruits as they're commonly known in their countries of origin. If you have a local 'Rare Fruit Club,' you'll want to join it after reading this 62-page mouth-watering look at exotic and interesting fruit from the Tropics.
Can you say "rambutan?" (RAM-boo-tan) If it's as much fun to eat as it is to say, I'll be delighted! One fruit it did not feature is the dragon fruit (aka pittaya) and I'm growing it in southwest Florida. Delicious & lovely to look at; tastes similar to a kiwi, perhaps.
