Tropical Fruit Season



The rainy season, which - in the Indonesian archipelago - takes place between October and April, is also the fruit season. Opening the season is usually guava (jambu biji/batu). Then Mango, rambutan, durian, and a host of other tropical fruits are available in abundance.

In the photo is a street vendor selling mangoes at Jalan Raya Barat Cimahi in the west of Bandung.

Mangoes in the rain, nice photos.

I have a mango waiting in a paper bag in a dark cupboard. Is that really the way to hasten their ripening?

Nice photos and (to me) it is also quite unusual fruit.

I saw guava for the first time in India in March but most of those fruits aren't readily available in our grocery stores!
