Here’s a colorful list of Taiwan fruits you must try!

Just this morning, I had the most amazing breakfast: all fresh from this season. On my plate were: a green orange, a giant persimmon, an even bigger pomegranate and a luscious dragon fruit. That’s only a smidget of what I grew up eating.

Taiwan isn’t known as “The Fruit Kingdom” for nothing. Although a high percentage of fruit vendors sell imported produce, Taiwan is naturally a subtropical zone and an ideal land for growing all kinds of tropical fruits. With mountains 4,000 meters above sea-level, and breezy cool climates from such mountains; Taiwan is a tropical island perfect for temperate-zone fruits as well.

So the next time you visit Taipei, don’t just indulge in what you know. Taste all that Mother Earth has granted this small but gorgeous island. Guavas, mangos, lychees, papayas are just for rookies! Here’s a colorful list of all things you must try on your next big trip to my fruity island!
