Garden of Eden

The full-on tropical climate leads to strange behaviours...many fruit trees are continuously flowering and fruiting...it can be a satisfying experience to have a house garden with fruits and vegetables.

 

A short walk through our garden revealed the following fruits [at least six other fruits also, but I don't have an English name for them] growing...

Obviously the climate agrees with them... Interesting looking... some a bit bizarre!
Ray: We have guava [non-native] trees that fruit continuously, Elizabeth...it is strange!

This is the fitting title! What a wonderful garden!

Know’st thou the land where lemon-trees do bloom,
And oranges like gold in leafy gloom;
A gentle wind from deep blue heaven blows,
The myrtle thick, and high the laurel grows?
Know’st thou it, then?
’Tis there! ’tis there,
O my belov’d one, I with thee would go!

(Goethe)
Ray: What lovely prose!

Same here - I don't have names for anything but the obvious citrus, banana & pineapple fruits. However as the UK becomes steadily more exotic, or strange, if you prefer, we are more than likely to see examples of the other things turning up in our supermarkets.
Ray: During this present season [hot&wet] you can almost hear plants growing, Chris!

It must be very satisfying to see all this fruit growing; you can't get it any fresher when it comes to harvest time. All my fruit generally comes from supermarkets sad
Ray: Bananas and mangoes, especially, are brilliant straight off the plant, Alan.
En français, ce sont des bananes et je les aime beaucoup.
Ray: Je crois que les bananes seraient l'un des fruits tropicaux les plus populaires, Martine, en Thaïlande, ils sont faciles à cultiver, et il existe environ 50 variétés différentes.
it must be wonderful to have all that fruit to pick fresh all year round
Ray: It is rather satisfying, Bill.
I have eaten them all except the jack fruit and use lime extensively in cooking. I grow apples and wild raspberries, nothing nearly as exotic.
Ray: Jackfruit is excellent, Mary...and one big fruit will feed the entire Village!
No excuse not to eat fresh fruit salad at your house.
quite a bit to satiate a herd of elephants?
