If there is one thing that stops me from envying our friends up north, it’s definitely the season’s fruits in our southern tropics. Here in Mauritius, we are all super exhilarated when our lucky-owners-of-a-lychee-tree neighbours gift us the first bunch of red lychees of the season, when we see the beautiful mangoes go from green to yellow and red on the mango trees, when we taste the much-awaited sweet and juicy watermelons, and just wishing for that thirst-quenching coconut water during the hot days.
These uplift my senses so much, I sometimes think a beautiful, carefully-selected bundle of these, as a Christmas gift, would certainly not be a bad idea!
Anyway, I’ve scoured the local market a bit to find out if we could get them already. Nearly there, nearly there. We’ll just have to wait a puny bit more, because really, It’s Not This Time of Year Without… them!
So what’s your favourite seasonal fruit? We’d love to hear about them.
Till then, sharing a few pictures from my market trip. Keep dazzling!
