The fruits are so beautifully mouth watering.
Fruits that are non-tropical like strawberry and peaches, cherries and nectarines, may take away our breath with their beautiful colours, but are practically tasteless. When it comes to sweetness and taste, our tropical fruits win hands down.

wow,i've never seen some of these fruits here!like,mangosteen,njaval,breadfruit,ambazhanga etc.i loveeeee anjilichakka,and the seeds too. chakka and manga comes first in my list of fruits.
i agree with raji,about the other fruits.it can be beautiful but not as tasty as our fruits.i dont like strawberries,it always gives me allergy.infact i cant stand any berries! only one i can eat is mulberry,i make pies with them:).
thanks for these beautiful tasty pictures:)

A long time ago I had an opportunity to taste wine made of Njaval Pazham. It was really fantastic.

Raji, Meera, thank you for the comments. I agree with you.

Yes, Kariyachan, njaval wine is excellent. Incidentally, a good pickle can be made from the flesh of nutmeg.

Dear AT sir;

Yes, I forgot to mention about the 'Jathicka Achar'( made from the flesh of nutmeg). It is also one of my favorite and is a real treat.
