At the KCC Saturday Farmers Market in Honolulu, we wanted to buy fresh fruit. Even an apple banana or papaya would have sufficed. But we hit the jackpot at a stand that was selling tropical fruits. There were lots of nicely arranged fruit. What struck my eye were plastic tubs of mixed, cut-up fruit, none of which I had ever eaten before. The one I selected consisted of lum kai mango, dragon fruit, Hong Kong pink guava, Egyptian pear guava and mamey sapote. Whether all were grown in Hawaii, I can’t say, but I can say we enjoyed them for breakfast on the following day. They were exotic, intensely flavorful, and full of edible seeds—an experience.
