More fruit please

Please add more fruits in your diet. Nyum.., nyum.... Hahahahaha.... That what I am talking to myself everyday. I replace my dinner on workday with fruits instead of the normal rice. Its help me losing weight and I feel healthier everyday. Last Sunday I having a walk at the Kota Marudu Tamu (flea market) and I can see a lots of fruits on sell for a cheap price. How about we play a game today, "tell me what this fruits name in your local language". I don't know if its even exist in your place. To anyone from Malaysia, please give me the name of the fruits in English.


Tell me what this fruits name in your local language:

1. Bambangan

2. Durian


3. Manggis

4. Rambai.

5. Rambutan.


6. Nenas.

7. Limau Bali.

8. Cempulut.

9. Terap.

Does any of these fruits your favourite foods? Terap and Bambangan are Sabah local foods. I haven't seen them in other places yet. Both of the fruits tree can grow up until 25 meters. When you open terap, you need to eat them instantly. If not, the taste and smell will be different or not as delicious of a newly open terap. Inside terap are small white seeds. Its sweet in taste and have a strong smell that you will never forget.


So. Can you tell me what are this fruits name in your language? Any of this fruits your favourite? Please share it here. I want to know more about you.

for #3 mangosteen in bisaya (Philipping dialect). and for #4 is: lanzones and it is very common in Camiguin (it is its fruit of the province) and it is so sweet when it comes from there, that is because of the many volcanoes (but not scarry) around. For #6, it is pinya in our dialect, then for #9 is marang which is so common in Gingoog City, Philippines and the rest I do not know or cannot recognized it excluding durian. :) Thanks for sharing.. By the way, what country/place are you? I keep on chasing your profile but haven't seen it. Again, thanks for sharing. :)

Hi cacai.
Thank you for informing about my profiles, i don't realize it don't show in this new templates.

Do you mean marang is a normal fruits in Gingoog City? Thank you for sharing. All this while I think that fruits only can be found in Sabah.

Is all that fruits name you given me in Bisaya?

Retinna Bell said...

Wow! I love this post...and your blog! You're really cool. We don't have many of those fruits you have photographed where I live, but I bet they are delightful! The only thing we have here is the Nenas, which we call pineapple. I look forward to reading more from you in the future! :^)

Zezebel said...

Hi Retinna.
Thank you for your comment and participation. Where do you live by the way?

The Twerp and I said...

Rambutan and Durian are called the same. We have all the other fruits here in the Philippines but by other names though. Cacai M ha named all the others and even some I don't know hahaha. Not a big fruit eater but trying hard for good health. Nice blog!

Zezebel said...

Hi Jelly.

Oh my... I haven't seen buah rambai for so long. Kinda miss that fruit. They were aplenty at my late grandma's house.

Zezebel said...

Hahahaha Lina.
We call them cempedak to. But most of the time people in Sabah call them cempulut.
Thanks for participating.

dondi045 said...

azmani said...

hi Z..
tat fruit u called cempulut, we here in peninsular call it cempedak. If i'm not mistaken, terap is buah sukun..never seen bambangan here in peninsular.. sedap x?

Zezebel said...

Hi azmani.
Terap is not sukun. You can see the fruits peel of showing the white fruits inside in the picture below it.

vange said...

The only thing I recognize is number six. We call that pineapple in the US. I'd love to try the others.

Zezebel said...

Hi vange.
Come to Sabah. Its our tropical fruits season right now.

Girlie said...

Z i know what it is, sorry i had to cheat and look it up in google. google says it's mango, that is mangga in our native tongue. i also saw a cut up photo of it, indeed it's mango =)

Zezebel said...

Hi Girlie.
I don't think it is mango. The outer layer of Bambangan skin is brown. Most mango skin either green or yellow. The tree can be up to 20 meters tall.

Girlie said...

it's another variety of mango, it looked like mango to me when it was cut up.

This is where I got the idea that it's another variety of mango
