Vietnamese Fruits - WW

20140323_182244

After an early breakfast in the hotel on our second day in Ho Chi Minh city, a few members and I strolled to a nearby street market. It was noisy and chaotic as there were many customers who were bargaining with stallholders over the prices of produce. 

Several ladies wanted to buy fruits back to Singapore after seeing the wide variety of Vietnamese fruits.

Breast Milk Fruit (Vu Sua)

*Are you giggling?*

I had my first taste of this breast milk fruit at a tropical fruit farm. I didn't know what its name was until I returned to Singapore and googled for information. The succulent and soft flesh tastes like sweet milk.  

One of my Vietnamese students described how he eats the fruit. Make a hole in the fruit, place his mouth over the hole and suck the soft flesh out. Yup, I understand why it is called the breast milk fruit now.

Are you still giggling? :D

  12. That is pretty funny I admit. But I'd try it -- I love to try new and different tropical fruits. There's a lady near here who grows and sells some (Florida climate is conducive to many of these) but I haven't seen the breast milk one. (And I don't think I'll ask ;>)!)
