Tropical Fruits

(Star apple)

One of the things my family and I luv about Saipan is the tropical fruits we find here.  The local tangerines, mangoes, papaya, and bananas are yummy.  You can even find some of the more exotic tropical fruits like chico, soursop, sweetsop, star apple, and mangosteen.  These fruits are all delicious.

What's even better about tropical fruits on Saipan is that for those folks that are growing them, they usually give them away to friends and relatives.  We're lucky that we fall into that category.  We get fresh fruit every other week or so when we get a visit from family or friends.  It's customary here (bringing something to eat when you stop by for a visit), and for us it's usually fresh fruit.  Oh, and boy do we luv it!

The mangoes are going to be in season soon, and we're anticipating bag loads of them.  Good thing we love mangoes!  You'll probably see a post just on mangoes when it's in season.

Tropical fruits on Saipan.... mmmm.... yum... and yep, another reason I Luv Saipan!
