Durian is the most popular fruit in Singapore. The "King of Fruits" is very popular among the local residents of Singapore. The outer cover of durian is spiky green or brown shell and the creamy yellow custard-like flesh within gives out a special odour. Due to the strong odour of the fruit it is not allowed in some of the hotels, public buildings and public transport.
The other major tropical fruits available in Singapore are mangosteen, longan, jackfruit, rambutan, lychee and pineapple. The specialty of the tropical fruits is that some of these are also used as ingredients while preparing special dishes.
The special dishes prepared with some of these fruits are iced desserts, sweet-and-sour pork and rojak. Most of the tropical fruits are imported from Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Taiwan and Indonesia. If you are in the mood of trying the wide variety of tropical fruits then visit the bustling fresh fruit markets of Singapore to come across the fresh food varieties.
