Fruit Parade

I have four kinds of fruit to consume this week. We bought this cantaloupe in Walmart last week but we never had a chance to slice it till yesterday. We brought it at my FIL as he loves this fruit too. It's very sweet. I was going to make some melon shake but our blender doesn't make fine ice anymore.

Do you like cantaloupe too? We also love honey dew melon (the green one).

These plums are from my friend Raquel's backyard, she invited us to pick her plums as it is loaded with fruits and they are just falling on the ground. So the kids and I and my SIL's family went there and picked most of them. My SIL I believe will make some jelly out of it. For me, we will just eat the ones we got. Actually, I am the only one eating them wahhh. am telling you, these plums are so sweet.

I bought a basket of peaches in the farmer's market the other day, I forgot that we were suppose to pick plums lol. I am the only one eating them too, the kids doesn't like it. It's a little bit sour.

These looks peaches too right? But they are apricots. We gave one basket of plums to our neighbor and in return, he picked his apricots in their backyard and gave it to us. Believe me, I ate all of these already as they were really good. He told us one interesting fact about this apricot, he said that this is the only kind where you can eat the nuts inside the seed and according to him, it taste like an almond. I still yet to try it, I need to dry the seeds from the sun first.

See the resemblance between the peaches and apricots. Both of their skin are fussy, the only difference is the size and when you eat the peach, its a little bit messy while the latter isn't.

Have a safe and fun weekend everyone.

It's so funny... one of my wishes was to see real peaches because I could only see the halved or sliced ones in a can.

My FTF is served HERE.

that's quite an interesting group of fruits! the cantaloupe and honey dew melon are the only ones i normally see around here that are fresh. the others are usually preserved, though would love to try them in their fresh state. :)

What a coincidence! I had peaches and plums too...except cantaloupe, not much fan of too sweet fruits.

Wow, those are exotic fruits here in the Philippines and we can get them only in cans. Cantaloupes have their counterpart here in the country with our melons. You sure ate a lot of fruits and they are really good for the body. Lots of vitamin C and antioxidants. Thanks for he post. God bless you all always.
