Fruits of Malaysia

You love flavor and you love food. You will be able to satiate your appetite for all things delicious in Malaysia. Most of the food here is a delight for your taste buds featuring sweet, tangy and spicy flavours. If you would still like to experiment but the fiery tastes of Malaysian curries are not for you, you could try one of the many exotic fruits the country has to offer. Unusual in both looks and tastes, the fruits of Malaysia can be pretty adventurous. Here are some that you must try:

1) Durian: Known as the ‘King of Fruits’, a Durian can evoke strong feelings. This is one fruit that you will either love or hate, there is no middle ground. Covered in thorn-like husk, the Durian has gained a reputation because of its distinctive odour. Durians come in exotically named varieties, ranging from Red Prawn, Green Skin Ang Bak, D604, Red Litter and Golden Pillow.

2) Rambutan: Covered in what appears to be tentacles, the Rambutan can be misleading. The outside can look distasteful but the fleshy insides are sweet and great to eat. The Rambutan is the perfect pre-snack before you venture into the territory of a Durian.

3) Mangosteen: Here’s a fruit that isn’t the normal shape. The inside of a mangosteen looks like an orange with very pronounced edges. The outside is a deep shade of burgundy and might not look like the most appetizing fruits. However, one bite of this fruit will change any preconceived notions you have about this.

While the curries and the local cuisine are a must-try for all tourists, the fruits can also satisfy your curiosity to try all things new.
