Sri Lanka Fruit Market


This is so exciting! Kandy market and it just buzzes with color, activity, people and the stores you can buy anything here, anything at all, but the most incredible part of Kandy market are their beautiful fruit stores. I mean just just look at this. Look how they display their fruits. I think they’re so original. I’d like to introduce you to a fruit that you’ve possibly never seen before in your lives. A mangosteen, you open it like this primitive way, the best way, look at that. It’s filled with, these succulent, white segments. Mmm they just melt in your mouth. Sri lanka has actually 18 different kinds of mangoes and 14 different kinds of bananas. Look at this. Red plantains and believe me they are delicious, they’re rich and very, very fruity Their grapes are wonderful. Look, at this, would you believe wood apples. Inside, we get this mushy brown, stuff that tastes wonderful. They actually make juice out of wood apples but it’s very much like the apple juice that we’re used to. Danbu. This little fruit have got the most beautiful color and they taste tart and refreshing on a hot day. These are super have a danbu. Big danbus. olives and the piece de resistance soursop. This fruit, makes the most marvellous mousse and you can drink it. They make wonderful juice out of it, see if I can show you a bit of it here. There we are. Filled with these… look at that. Little black seeds that you just spit out once you’ve sucked the juice out of this wonderful Indigenous Sri Lankan fruit, soursop,cheers
