The Fruits of Pingtung

10 01 2011

A typical Hengchun Peninsula fruit stand advertising "wax apples" but selling much more.

On our way back to Mudan we stop by one of the many roadside stalls that line the coastal highway. Atimbon purchases some wax apples, pineapple and pomelos – a collection of distinctly different sweet and tart flavors that make Pingtung fruit so refreshing and memorable. In the coming weeks, these fruits, along with the seasonal green dates, would become one of the most memorable flavor experiences from my trip to southern Taiwan.
