|This one is past its best, very overripe.|
It was a bit of a rip-off at £10, reduced to £8,
but the vendor wouldn't cut it.
We had a small soursop, a.k.a. guanabana - or, in the Philippines, guyabano - here the other day but I neglected to photograph it. They too can grow as big as jackfruit, as I have seen them growing on a tree trained to a wall near Manila. Soursop is well-named and harsh to eat but makes an interesting juice drink. My wife loves jackfruit but I find the sweet smell nauseating.

It's too chilly for a wee dog who has just had her annual trim! She needs all her blankets, including Mam's cardigan. Ye druids, file this complaint.

|Mangosteen. Extraordinary hard-shelled fruit.|
The edible part is a bit like lychee.
|Guava. The texture is a bit like a crunchy pear.|
|Clockwise from top left: papaya, mangosteen, mango, guava.|

The ripe fruit is contained in a dry, crumbly shell like an oversize pea pod. Inside is a chain of stones robed in sticky, piquant black fruit. It has the exquisite taste used in the popular Filipino sinegang broth.
