Summer fruits in Kyoto...
Summer fruits in Osaka..
Lets see these Japan local fruits that I tried..
Apples - so juicy. The best apple I had in my life, so far. Price, 192yen each.
Peaches - honestly I never had peaches before, all the peaches that I saw in my hometown's supermarket are not that fresh/firm looking. So my experience with peaches - Japanese peaches were indeed a memorable one. These are so much juicier that the apples. I had quite a number of these peaches while in Japan, I even lost my voice on our last day there. I think it must be due to all the yummyliciois fruits that I consumed, coz my hubby and kids, they did not have any sore throat symptoms. Price range from 340yen to 1000yen each.
Strawberry - I read somewhere that says the Japanese strawberry are all red even in the inside. So I Got to give it a try. Yes its true. Even the smallest and cheapest strawberry that I bought were all really red. Price around 350yen - 398yen per packet.
Cherries - fresh, firm, sweet. Price range from 126yen - 590yen per packet.
Next, fruits that I didn't get to try...
Mango - 598yen each. Malas nak kotorkan pisau Aritsugu saya yang dah cantik dibulat, so I didnt buy these. Rasa menyesal la pulak. Price, 598yen each.
Watermelon - price between 390yen - 450yen per slice.
Banana - kesian, dah hitam dah pisang ni pun 100yen per plate.
Mikan - Japanese citrus, around 150yen-200yen each.
Kyoho - these are huge and expensive grapes, plus I have spent too much on peaches so I had to skip these.
Musk melon is also one of the famous summer fruit in Japan, they are quite expensive, I have tasted the fruit before, and I don't really fancy the taste, so I skipped these.
Ume - Japanese Apricots, I read that these can be quite sour, skipped these too.
Fruits, like any other things in Japan really make the trip (and the money) worth it.
