You really wouldn’t want to have one of these fat fruits land on your nonce. This colossal fruit coral packs plenty of weight. This is jackfruit. Open up the hard, pebbled exterior and you’ll find yards of slim, creamy, fragrant, yellow flesh to gobble down. This guy hacks up dead jackfruit on the corner of Nguyen Van Thu and Hai Ba Trung Streets in District 1 from 11am onwards every day.
His missus flogs the stuff. If she likes the look of you, she’ll give you a free nibble. After delving into the delights of this stall, you’re bound to want to stump up for a take home cartoon. An elastic band sealed, plastic tray will cost you 10,000VD. It’s the stuff fruitarian wet dreams are made of. Just two shakes of a badger’s snout away, on the opposite side of the road, is a competitor selling the same stuff in the same way at the same price. However, you won’t find a cone on her head.
