One of the fun things in Jakarta is we get to see all kinds of tropical fruits along the streets. There are fruit trees everywhere. Mango trees, banana trees, pineapple trees, etc, etc… Remember the Jack-fruit tree in our previous post? It’s full of giant Jack-fruit. We wonder who are the lucky people that can pick these fruits. The fruits have to belong to someone, right?

Here are a few fruit trees we get to see everyday:

  1. Funny thing the Sigua is really common in Latin America, but I’ve never seen people eating it, it’s used as a sponge. I have a couple of seeds that I’m planning to plant next spring, I should give it a try and see how it tastes.
    I love mango and jackfuit too.

    • People here use Sigua as sponge, too. But they cook it and eat at the same time.

      There are many, many kinds of mangoes here. Hard for us to tell the difference.

      Love the Jackfruit. It is huge.
