FSO: Fresh

These fruits and the tree with fruits on the trunk are common in South East Asia, but I think would be quite unusual to the rest of the world.My take for this week's fresh : meaning new to one's experience; not encountered before.

star fruit, usually a lime green colour when ripe.

Dragon fruit

The infamous ultra smelly durian

Stem fig tree

tiny banana, papayas and mangoesteen

This Friday our theme is Fresh.
