1. Pitahaya from Ecuador
Did you know that Pitahaya produced in Columbia and Ecuador are the sweetest, about18°Brix in the pitahaya family? Well, savour my friends, you now can get pitahaya from Ecuador right at FruitsDeli in Penang! Yellow Pitahaya has a smoother texture which brings it the nickname of “Bird’s Nest Fruit”. Low in calorie, with a high content of dietary fibre. The plant protein it contains is a good source of protein and is much healthier than animal protein!
2. Granadilla from Ecuador
The granadilla is our personal favourite. With an orangish thick skin on the outside, when you cut into it, it kinda crack for a little, and you’ll see the edible part, which consists of seeds and jelly-like stuff. Yup, it resembles mini frog eggs, where the little mass of jelly and seeds will stick together in a clump. Yes, it does has the tang of passion fruits yet is way sweeter than that.
3. Aomori Apples from Japan
Did you know that Aomori Apples are the “World’s best Apples.” Compared to others in respect to their color, shape and taste, they distinct as well in terms of quality: sweet, juicy and beautiful unlike any other fruits in the world. And you may even grow to appreciate them much like one appreciates fine art. Also, Aomori tops the apple production in Japan! Thanks to FruitsDeli, we now get to have the taste of such wonderful fruit production!
4. Premium Peaches from Australia
Soft upon touch, with a fragrance that resembles a floral aroma. It has a smooth fibreless texture as well as sweet and juicy content when it’s ripe. That’s the taste of premium peaches from Australia. With fuzzy skin and white coloured with and pink-red strip, their peaches have a much more delicate texture and flavour. They usually arrive in FruitsDeli when they are still firm and crunchy. When it ripens, it tends to become softer and juicier- a fantastic any-time snack. However, do note that these peaches are seasonal and will only be available at FruitsDeli until Chinese New Year!
5. Formosa Nona from Taiwan
Appearances can be very deceiving. These nonas are not pretty on the outside, yet they are probably the sweetest fruit that exists. Having a creamy white filling on the inside, the texture resembles a grainy pear towards the green knobby clusters but becomes softer and more velvety towards the centre. Wondering how to eat it? Just crack the fruit down between your palms to split it open, then use a spoon to scoop everything out.
6. Premium Strawberry from Korea
Did you know that strawberries aren’t technically a berry or a fruit? Reason being is they have their seeds grown on the outside, making it a “false fruit”. Anyways, who cares though, they’re absolutely delicious. Admit it, a strawberry is amongst some of the most loved fruits on the planet, possessing a unique tangy-sweet taste that draws people to want them. And we can now even get fresher and more delicious Korean strawberries from Fruits Deli!
