In the Starfruit Grove

One of my favorite memories of Taiwan was visiting my grandfather’s nurse/adopted daughter who married a man with a mango farm and going mango picking. When I was in high school, we all went and had a lovely afternoon picking mangoes.

This past visit, we went to visit her again and got the tour of the farm in general.

A baby starfruit and its flowers. As the fruit ripens, it will turn golden.

In the starfruit grove under the canopy of leaves. All the starfruit are covered with the paper bags used to keep away insects. We had to stoop to walk around there.

    Your pictures are really nice.
    And I’ve still never tried starfruit. Haha.

    Thank you!

    I want to see yours…

    You seriously need to try starfruit! It’s supposed to be good for sore throats, and is lightly sweet. Oh, and no one noticed my haircut at work.

    Hope you’re relaxing!
