Fruit and Flower



















For stunning beauty in this current season, people go for banana flowers. This flower lasts for over a week and two or three stems look beautiful in a big vase. Banana flowers are not really expensive, at only costs about 10,000Vnd for one. The structure and color of these flowers are worth it. Bananas also are a good fresh fruit or cooked fruit for dessert as well.

Pineapples are a great fresh fruit for any season, though it's better in the summer because it's juicy and refreshing. It's sometimes very sour but most of the time it is sweet. In Vietnamese cooking, we use it a lot. Have you ever tried pineapple pancake? They're not bad.

Mandarins are the best fruit choice at this time of the year. There are two kinds of mandarins, one is small and the other is bigger, about the same size as an orange. The smaller mandarins without seeds are sweeter and more expensive, the others a bit sour and the quality depends on where they come from.

Oranges are good for any season because they are healthy. Everyone loves oranges from sick people to athletes. Lots of people drink orange juice and make cakes using them.
