Fruits of Malaysia

One of the things I had wanted to document while in Malaysia, was the fantastic variety of fruits they have there. I have posted about the durian, but there are many other fruits growing in Malaysia which I have managed to capture with my camera. So here they are.

The fruit that I have never seen before, and that my wife did not recognise, is the Nipa palm fruit which is called attap chee – a whitish fleshy fruit used in many different dishes in Singapore and Malaysia such as ice kachang.

As you can see, there are many different fruits that I had come across – and many more that I have not had a chance to photograph. I did not include the durian in this post, as that has already been covered in another post.
