Amazing discoveries of fruit from all over the tropical world at the Penang tropical fruit farm.
Fruit buffet included in the tour. Back area is the large passionfruit - seeds taste nice but the flesh is quite tasteless.
Rose Apple in the front (fabulous!!! Just a gorgeous delicate taste.), green oranges on the left, nutmeg fruit right behind the rose apple. Jackfruit slices underneath.
Fruit juice also included in the tour. I had the pineapple and salty sweet cured nutmeg fruit drink. Amazing!
Sapote fruit top left. Mediterranean figs on the right. Yellow sapote in the front. I need to wait two more days to eat this.
Mediterranean fig - better than most fresh figs I've tried. These are the ones they use to make dried figs!
Yellow sapote! Crazy fruit called canistel / egg fruit / yellow sapote. Very very dry. Like a cooked egg yolk. Tastes like a sweet custardy egg yolk. Surprisingly very nice but still weird!
Sapote - beautiful caramel like flavour, smooth texture. Delicious!
Velvet apples feel like peaches but must be peeled. Not crazy about the flavour or texture.
Velvet apples feel like peaches but must be peeled.
Nutmeg fruit is ripe when it is split and red inside. This one has split but is not red inside yet
Edward, best guide ever, and the largest species of passionfruit. Does not yield much fruit though.
Dichotomy. Huge passion fruit. Tiny pineapple species.
One pineapple per plant. Then you have to replant another seed and grow another pineapple.
Surinam cherries! Three types of cherries (one that looks like little pumpkins), two types of coffee fruit (fruit tastes pretty boring), the largest passion fruit I have ever seen, Jackfruit my fave tropical fruit and the most interesting drink made from pineapple and nutmeg cured in a salt & sweet brine.
Miracle fruit from West Africa which change your tastebuds to sweeten all food tasted after it has been eaten. Must be tried to be believed. I had a line afterwards and it tasted like an orange!
Long lemon fruit
