Exotic Fruits

The other day, hubby bought some fruits from this fruit stall in PJ SS2 that sells a good variety of fruits. It’s located beneath Babyland. When he came home with the fruits, I was all smiles… coz he bought me my all-time favorite king of fruits – Musang King variety somemore (grin!), longans, huge red dragon fruits, huge golden kiwi (love them but they are darn expensive) and these exotic fruits:

Can anyone guess what fruit these are? These are pears. The skin is red but the flesh is white. The texture is like green Peckham pear but they are tasteless and hard and I wouldn’t buy them again. They cost RM11 for 7. There are still 6 in the fridge and I guess they will be sitting inside the fridge for a couple of weeks till they turn soft and mushy… ah, that’s when I’ll eat them coz I like pears that are soft and really ripe.

This is a custard apple. There used to be a fertile custard apple tree that bore lots of fruits in my old home when I was young, which my late maternal grandma planted. My brothers and I loved plucking them from the tree and eating them as dessert after our dinner.  I’ve not eaten them for yonks. So when I saw this fruit (cost RM5 each), I was excited. This huge custard apple tasted very sweet and I ate it when it was chilled. But my 2 older gals, sigh…. they didn’t want to have anything to do with the fruit, not even sniff it! Why? Beats me, maybe the fruit does not have an appealing appearance… you know, with lumps like that, it really did look dodgy in their eyes, haha!  I’m a big fan of fruits and we spend quite a bit on fruits each month.
