Pineapples season

Tamu Muhibah is again filled with pineapples. They are planted mostly by the ulu people.
Prices of pineapples don't seem to go up over the last few years. In Sarawak, Sarikei is another place very famous for pineapples. They have lots of pineapples like what is shown in the picture above.
For those who wanted to eat instantly, there are some ready to go! Or you may bring them home...

... as they are simply delicious looking and also to the taste. Beside, they are also pleasing to the eyes! Miri pineapple is known to be sweet and juicy!
My favourite is nanas sawit (or palm pineapple). They are truely juicy, soft and sweet ... mouth watering good! This one is considered small at 2 KG. There are bigger ones which easily weigh more than 4KG. They cost RM5 per kg at the moment.

Wow...i never really like pineapples. but i've tasted some good juicy and sweet ones. I'm not sure what type actually. I wonder how nanas sawit tastes?

I dislike pineapples too. It might cut one's tongue.

uncle william, i thought right now, you should post something about durian rather than pineapple?
hehe...

RW Photography, Vincent: Now I felt jealous that you have durian in W.Malaysia. Anyway, I will be there this weekend and I shall see for myself, especially the one in SS2! I was told that there are some durians in Miri also.

tiee: nanas sawit is very good. Go and try one and you will never regret!

Flower: Don't worry about "cutting" your tongue. Just put some salt or sour plum powder. Otherwise, try nanas sawit as it will not do such thing to you.

You should go try the pineapple at Bario highland. Nanas Sawit is sweet but not crunchy. Sarikei pineapple is crunchy but not as sweet. Bario's is both as sweet as Nanas Sawit and as crunchy as Sarikei's. Best of both world. The bad news is, you have to fly to Bario to taste it.

Uncle William, you must try Kuantan's Nenas Madu. Looks good and tastes even better.

So far I only tried Bario pineapple once. Pretty young kelabit ladies of Bario Highlands always serve this fruits with straws insert to welcome visitors or VIP. Indeed crunchy, sweet and juicy. Must try!!!!!
