[quote=“Tempo Gain”][quote=“TainanCowboy”]Love those “little green apple” like things.
In a blender with slices of pineapple and some milk & ice cubes…MMMMmmmmmmm!
Or just munch on 'em outta the fridge…good stuff
Be careful they have a large seed/pit inside - take that out first![/quote]
am i right that those are dates? never cared for them much, will try your recipe though
another one i never got was persimmons
not crazy about starfruit or those little “xianggua” melons either[/quote]
Zhuolan in Miaoli County has great starfruit, you have to eat the big ones and in the right season, totally different taste.
Persimmons may not be the greatest tasting but it sure is an exotic looking fruit, looks like an orange tomato growing on a tree.
The green one you are talking about is like a small apple right but kind of shape of a kiwi fruit, I don’t think that’s a date is it? Is it is Litchi or something along those lines…
Interestingly and kind of incredibly Taiwan does have some colder summer fruits such as mulberries in the mountains here and you can buy mulberry (american blackcurrant?) organic jam (jelly) in the shops here which is excellent and made in Taiwan! It may be from the same trees that were previously grown for silk production.
