Malaysian Fruits are an integral part of Malaysian cuisine and you can find them in sight across the country. Here I share some of the fruits that are not commonly found in India. While you are on a tour of Malaysia, recommend you try the variety of fruits there.

Dragon Fruit aka Pitaya.

It is colorful on the outside, but is dull light grey inside with white dots, probably that is what gave it it’s name.

It is possible that you can find some of these fruits in upmarket fruit vendors. Potentially imported fruits, they are very common fruits of Malaysia and colorful too. It may be better to try them sometimes, who knows you might well like some of them. It is indeed a good practice to include fruits as part of one’s everyday meal, seasonal, local and of-course affordable.

  1. I have seen Rambuthan only which is commonly available in Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines etc. but not in India. Still you can buy Rambuthan in India in selected city/shop as they are importing it.

  2. I visited Malaysia recently and every where I see “No Durian Fruit Allowed” signs (in trains, hotels, buses, museums etc.). I tried finding this fruit everywhere and all I saw were Durian cakes, durian puddings, durian chocolates, durian this and durian that. I didn’t want to try any of these processed items. But in the one week I was there, I never did find the actual Durian fruit in RAW pristine format. 🙁
