The fruits of Vietnam

The fruits of Vietnam

Well, it is officially winter.  We had our first low temps of 29 degrees when an “arctic blast” came through.  I will post about the damage in another thread.

This cold weather makes me wish to be in the tropics.  Here are some pics from our trip to vietnam.

Hanging out under a large Mango tree.  This tree had to be at least 40 feet tall and 4 feet wide.  It covered half the parking area and we sat here to cool off.  There were about 20 other people under the tree.

The fresh fruit markets.  Notice the durian, mangosteen, longan, dragonfruit, mango and rambutan.  Yummy!!

  1. The pictures remind me of the markets in El Salvador. Or course, some of the fruit being offered were a bit diferent. Annona Squamosa and nearly every fruit in the Annonacea family! Carambolas, Guavas, Nances, Mombins, Breadfuit, Mangoes, dragonfruit and Rambutans believe it or not!

    You are definately very lucky to have been in such a place with yummy fruit!


  2. Josh, i wish we had more fruit like this in the US…maybe florida or hawaii…my sister picked up some mangosteen in hawaii but they were no where near as good as the ones we had in vietnam.

  3. Now I want to go back to vietnam too!!! If the ticket is cheap and when I have vacation time I will go back again…for the fruits….lol
