They’re in season and Superstore has them, and on sale! It’s that time of year, soon Chinese New Year. I always remember buying Pomelos in China at this time because they are in season and so juicy and delicious. They are an Asian fruit that is kinda like an orange and kinda like a grapefruit but I think they are even better and I can eat a whole one everyday!! So good.
The other fruit that is around is Dragon Fruit. This fruit is interesting to look at and stays ripe for a long time but then all of a sudden it is rotten. Not that it lasts that long in my home.
Papaya is my choice from Brazil ( and pineapples and bananas…you haven’t tasted a banana until you’ve tasted one from Brazil) Since Christmas there have been ripe Papayas in the store. They are a little pricey but they are in season so the taste is so delicious.
I am so happy that certain times of the year I can get some of my favourite tastes from countries we lived in. In Canada we can get any fruit or vegetable at any time of the year BUT I have learned, even here, it is best to eat fruit seasonally. The flavour is so much better!! I can’t wait til this summer for strawberry season to taste fresh local strawberries again. It has actually been since the summer of 2010 since I’ve had local fresh strawberries.
A great pick me up in winter? A big fruit bowl filled with delicious fruit!
