  fresh yang mei
by hooiluangoh

Favorite thing: As a malaysian, I have always thought fruit season means Durian / Mangoesteen / Rambutan season.

In Kunming, you find
Winter (Oct to Jan) : strawberries, navel oranges, grapefruit.

Spring (March, April) : cherries, mulberries, chinese cherries.

Spring - summer (May onwards) : pipa, chinese peaches (yum yum), mangoes, yangmei (this is another yum yum found only in China), li (go for the green ones they are very sweet, absolutely fabulous).

Fondest memory: Try the yangmei (about RMB 1.50 per 100g). I have only eaten the preserved ones at home, but over here, the fresh ones are quite something to eat.

Note: you can't eat too much because it contains an acid that will make your teeth feel soft, and yangmei does not keep well even in the fridge.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
