Fruity, Fruity

Over the course of a week in Kuching I came across few unique fruits of Sarawak. Of all the fruits below only the durian is seasonal. Durian- the King of Sarawak fruits is back in town this month of July. However from what I notice so far around the city, this year does not seem to be a bountiful durian harvest at all. ( Note: All the vernacular names below are in Malay)

Durian - Durio zibethinus

Kedondong - Canaruim spp.

Manggis - Garcinia mangostana

Pedada - Sonneratia alba

Mengkudu - Morinda citrifolia
