Juicy, creamy, crunchy, succulent…decadent delicacies so rich and satisfying you almost feel guilty: sun-kissed tropical fruits drenched with the taste of warm rain nurturing the earth, and exotic fruits you’ve never heard of that look so fantastical like they’re straight from an Alice in Wonderland orchard. That’s the tropical & exotic fruits experience.
Grab your palate ‘backpack’ and get ready for some sweet taste trips. Whatever your wanderlust, tropical fruits (many from South America) and exotic fruits (many from Southeast Asia) take you there. Since fruit is nature’s perfect food – packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber, without fat – go ahead and indulge. For starters, here’s a tempting selection of tropical and exotic fruits.
Taste the Tropics
Tropical gems come in sizzling colors, textures and flavors – each is an invitation to discover and delight.
So lush they explode with flavor on your tastebuds, mangoes are loaded with vitamins and potassium. Each mango gives you about a tenth of your daily fiber requirement. Just peel and relish!
Guavas give a tropical flavor to many fruit drinks, so even if you've never had a guava, you may be familiar with its taste. Guavas are also widely used in jellies, jams, and sherbets.
Many say that papaya has a taste that’s addictive. It’s naturally low in calories, and resisting is futile. So just cut it in half, scoop out the seeds and dig in!
There’s nothing that tastes like coconut – and you can enjoy the distinct flavor of coconut in so many ways: eat it by the spoonful, add it to your smoothies, oatmeal, cooked meals and baked desserts.
The world’s full of exotic treats – in unimaginable shapes and sizes. Live a little. Try something different!
One of the largest tree fruits in the world (it can grow to 80 pounds!), jackfruit has a sweet buttery flesh that tastes like a cross between an apple, pineapple, mangoand banana.
The name rambutan is derived from Malay and means "hairy" – click to see why! Once its hairy exterior is peeled away, the tender, fleshy, delicious fruit is revealed. It is sweet and sour, much like a grape.
Yes, you guessed it – the five-angled yellow-green starfruit (also known as carambola) looks like a star. The tree first bears clusters of small lilac, bell-shaped flowers which become the oblong fruits.
The hallmark of physalis is its unusual, lantern-like husk encasing – physalis belongs to the nightshade family and shares a relation with tomatoes. So it can be used in many of the same ways.
