Abiu, Bugnay, Corn kag iban pa!

By GERLIE M. UY
LEE NATHAN WONG, poster boy of fruits!!!!

ABIU seedlings is now available at Bureau of Plant Industry, Brgy. La Granja, La Carlota City
abiu is the family of caimito but this kind is without the messy tar, but with extra sweetness and jelly-like flesh...
Bugnay aka bignay abounds. This little grapes can turn into wine.
Bugnay, up close.
Santol, the pulpy seed and chewy flesh is popular when sweet and soury, not when entirely sour.
This is not the Bangkok Santol because they're all small.
Avocado is rich in good cholesterol but high in calories...
pulpy and smooth... add some milk and sugar to complete the dessert.
I love lychees...this was bought from the grocery.

not so good capture by a cellphone camera...

A taste of Kiwi... not a native here, of course. These were presents from a family friend.

Tasting Kiwi.
grapes in toothpick...

grapes quoted with chocs...
Lakatan, fave of Pinoys...

Papaya aka kapayas is sweet and delicate...


Tisa, known to be ever rich for Vitamin A...powdery and sweet.


Mabolo, forgot how is this eaten. Just like santol, they say!!!


The pineapples


Up close and personal with the "eyes."

Not a fruit but a sweet thing on our tables nowadays...


sweet corn...
