Fruits From My Parents
July 31, 2016 5:12am CST
My parents sent us fruits again. I got the two boxes from the forwarding services yesterday. My son and my brother went with me to the forwarding services to get it. The fruits are bananas, avocado, pomelo and big jackfruit. My older sister also came to get her share. The bananas, avocado and pomelo are ripe and ready to be eaten. But the jackfruit will take 2 to 3 days more to be ripe and eaten. My mother said she will also send us "atis" or custard apple next time.

@acelawrites i notice that when people see a jackfruit tree laden with fruits, they're eager to help the owner pick it and pay for it. i also see wooden carts with jackfruit sold in chunks, instead of the whole fruit. it's like a much awaited fruit and they're okay with buying even just a section of it.

@magallon It's my understanding that when bananas are shipped into the U.S. they are sprayed with a WWII poisonous gas to kill any spiders that may be hiding in the bananas. A small about of this gas soaks though the peel and gets into the bananas. Most people can tolerate this, but others can't. I'm one that can't. That's what I've been told. If I eat bananas I'll throw up.
