You know what I enjoy most in going to public markets especially during market days? I get to see fruits and vegetables that are no longer commonly sold. This morning, my mother and I went to the market and these are what I found. We call this fruit "anonas". I asked Mr.Google and he said it is called custard apples in English. We used to have this tree at home when I was small. I am not sure if that tree died or it was cut. We don't have it anymore. One kilogram costs 50Php or about US$1.00. The fruits are not yet ripe so I still have to wait. Do you have this fruit in your country? Do you know how it tastes like?

@brokenbee It's not my favorite, it's too sweet and creamy, I like more firm fruits.

Anonas? I enlarged the picture to take a good look and I think I haven't seen nor tasted one yet. At first I thought it's mabolo, but it's not.

Really? Hmmm It is smaller than a mabolo and sometimes the skin is a little orange. It looks like atis inside with lots of black seeds and white flesh.

They look like Mexican Mangoes! I grew up in a small village . . moving to the city when I was 12. The wild fruit that I really loved to eat when I was a kid was allagat. I don't know if you have ever eaten or seen this fruit.

We still have it here in the Philippines but it is becoming rare already. I just don't know in some other provinces but here in my province, I seldom see it in the market.

I haven't seen these fruits before. It is something new for me. Is it something similar with apples?

Nope. This has lots of seeds inside which are bigger than apple seeds. What you eat is the flesh that coats those seeds. It is sweet and creamy.

It's the day or days of the week where there are more sellers who come in our public market and sell their produce and other goods. Usually, they bring their products out in the streets. We usually have it twice a week here.
