Here’s an amazing looking fruit that I picked up on the Thai side of the Poipet border coming back from Bangkok. They are the size of cherries and taste nothing like them. In fact cherries taste mush better (if they’re not pumped full of chemicals) in my opinion. But these look just astounding!!
They are called Sa’ree in Khmer. Haven’t a clue in English. They are juicy with a bit of crunch, have a hint of sweet and a hint of sour. I ate them with the traditional salt and chilli mix you get with all sour fruits here. In fact I was rather disappointed with the taste. I expected something much more spectacular because of it’s beauty!!
Look at my little beauties with their soft red skin shining in the midday sun…. !!
And if I was totally honest the orange patches are where they started to go bad. You see I waited till I got home because I thought they would be so delicious I wouldn’t have any left to photograph. And once I was home I had other matters to attend to so I forgot about them for a couple of days.
