夏日的户外生果檔 / Tutty Fruity


With the tourists coming into town, the fruit stands in the open market are displaying their most colourful and attractive produce. There are mangoes from Mexico, water melons from Asia, honey dews from the US, and kiwi fruit from NZ, just to mention a few. There are also farmers selling their freshly picked vegetable and fruit (strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are my favourites) and the prices are usually much cheaper than those in the grocery stores. Locals also come to shop in this area and often bring home potted flowers for their gardens. Sidewalk cafés are open and you can get a nice cool smoothies while people watching. Oh, I just love the tutty fruity days of summer !!!

Are these stands open everyday? Hey, are those mangoes from Mexico nice? There are various species of mangoes here, but I still think that mangoes from Philippines (呂宋芒)are most delicious.

Xiao Zhu: Xiao Zhu: The stands open daily from spring to fall. You are right, 呂宋芒 still taste better and the Asian varieties are available in Chinese grocery stores here. Mind you, I have tasted Mexican 呂宋芒 (not the big red and green ones shown on the right of the picture, but the ones under the sign "Ataulfo very sweet mango") and they are delicious although not as delicate as those from the Philippines.

嘩~水果遠看已經好新鮮咁~
超愛水果,可惜有些水果很愛吃而不能吃.
身體弱之故~
最愛水果:黑莓,藍莓(做yogart最fit~),蘋果(富士大種);西瓜(寒底不能吃);
以色列柿;桃太郎茄;山竹及紅毛丹(次次都不知道怎麼樣吃).

紗繪: 那攝影图片的水果,真是很新鮮啊! 在這边,唐人圈子以外,很少有人会說水果無益,寒底不能吃西瓜等等,我也不大明白。我也常常自製Strawberry / blackberry / blueberry / raspberry yogurt 來吃,但桃太郎茄丶山竹、及紅毛丹就少吃點了。

為人唐人圈子以外,其他人會有益點?
難道圈內他們認為沒有營養?
雖然那一些制yogurt好好吃,但是脂肪糖份真是高,現在已經沒有再吃了~
而且,我覺得yoguart都唔便宜.

紗繪: 我想那就是中国和西方社会,对健康和医學的不同看法。Yogurt 在這裏有多種,有脫脂和沒有糖的 (Astro 牌的plain natural yogurt 1% MF, 0% sugar, 750g, 售價約3加元)。

紗繒: 加元比美元昇了值,沒法,我也会不捨得。
