Here's your chance to try rambutan and other exotic fruits. Ask a shopkeeper for instructions on how to open and serve each fruit.

Am I the only person who obsesses about exotic fruits that would be hard to find where I live in Seattle? It's hard not to love a display like this one with Rambutan and Mangosteen at very reasonable prices.

What is Photo Friday?

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.
  • Link back here so that your readers can see all the other great Photo Friday posts.

        Where in Seattle did you find these? I'm on the Eastside, but out would be worth the trip in to the city to try something new!

        It's funny - I don't remember ever seeing these fruits for sale in Australia where we have a very tropical climate. That you can find them in Seattle ... wow. Of course now that I live in Asia I see them at the markets every day.

        Sorry, my writing was unclear - these are hard to find in Seattle, so I loved finding them in Honolulu's Chinatown! There's also a lot of great exotic fruit in the markets in Vancouver, BC

        We have an amazing open air market here in Edinburgh each Saturday where there are a host of stalls selling some amazing exotic fruits that you just can't buy in supermarkets.
