I know a lot of you live outside Philippine borders, in 100+ different countries and hundreds of cities across the globe. But assume for a moment you are home, or have access to the fruits that were/are available in the Philippines, what would be your top 5 fruits (same question for all of you who do live here)? I am trying to figure out if my choices are the same as most of my readers, as well as come up with a list of the ten most desired fruits. Ideally, the fruits you mention should be grown here rather than imported for the most part (hence, oranges would mean dalandan or satsumas, not valencias or blood oranges). My list would probably include carabao mangoes, pomelos, mangosteen, kalamansi at the top, but the next few it gets dicey, maybe (saba) bananas, chicos, lansones, duhat, santol, dalandan, dayap, coconuts, etc. If you can’t recall all the fruits, here is a link to the Marketmanila Philippine Fruit Index that summarizes many of the fruit posts on this blog. Once I get a feel for the super popular choices, I may run a poll to see which ones you really rate very high… Thanks!!!
