Fruits of their labour July 20, 2007Posted by asianpixmen in Culture, Food, Malaysia, People, Places.
Malaysia is a land blessed with an abundance of tropical fruits. From what I heard, some botanists are already experimenting with temperate fruits as well.
Plant genetics have evolved since the days of Isaac Newton. However, those bunches of fruits you see above were on sale at the Kuala Kangsar rest stop along the North-South Expressway.
Farmers from the surrounding areas have stalls at those rest stops spread out intermittently over the entire length of the highway. However, sometimes the fruit sellers tend to get a little enthusiastic over the pricing.
Nevertheless, if you have stayed overseas for any extended period of time, you will learn very quickly to appreciate our own Malaysian fruits.
