Taiwan: New Fruits

Wax apples. These were my favorite fruit by far. I’ve never seen them at the grocery stores here, but I wish we had these. They have a waxy skin, as the name alludes to, but a super crisp, light, and sweet taste. The whole thing can be eaten, unless you get a slightly more matured […]
