Cariibean Fruits

http://www.tntisland.com/fruits.html

One of the best things about living in Toronto (in my opinion, the finest – and truest – multicultural city in the world) is the abundance of exotic produce available for our immigrant population to have a taste of home. Almost all of the fruits listed on this page are available at a single, Chinese-run grocery store a few minutes’ walk from me. It’s terrific fun not only to try all these different and unfamiliar items, but to get the opinions of my neighbours as to how best to prepare or enjoy them. Tonight I had my first – and definitely not last – taste of the succulent “rose apple”; Imagine the crispness of a Ya Pear (which are just as common here as the old world apples) with a very subtle sweetness. Yum!
