Fruit (post by Bill & Liz)

Fruit is in abundance in the local markets, there were some fruits that were unknown to us, such as sugarfruit and galip nuts.

These pictures show pomelo, soursop, pawpaw and bananas.




In PNG there are many types of bananas, from finger sized ones up to really big ones. The bananas are really cheap in markets, only K2 (80 cents) for a hand of bananas, they don’t always look as pretty as in Australian supermarkets but certainly taste much better. Another banana that we are not used to are cooking bananas, these are treated more like potatoes and do taste like sweet potatoes.
