Or hope springs in your heart when you see your first watermelon! Perhaps your heart will give a stir for a summer adventure.
We are all different in how we perceive our world. Perhaps happiness for me is seeing the first rosebud.Perhaps happiness for you is seeing the first little rabbit jumping in the field!
With Spring and early summer many fruits will be harvested in Fujian. April in Fujian has given me the opportunity or even once in a lifetime chance to eat the glorious Fujian fruits of my ancestors. One of the popular ones is the peach:
This is the Fujian Pipa. Sweet and juicy. Even its skin can be eaten. But I understand that Taiwanese are particular. They will peel the skin off.
And this is the pride of Fuzhou : the Kana...still green it is tangy and has as little stickiness. I suppose it is an acquired taste. Having been brought up only to enjoyed the preserved types I find the fresh one a little difficult to eat. The juice too is not what every one may like. However people over there order it like we order Kalamansi juiceor Air Limau here.
There are other fruits like little Li or li tzi and apples. I bought some nice plums and pittaya.
