Sherbet picks some wax apples
I have been very busy here on my holiday island. I decided I would go in search of some delicious fruit. I searched and I searched and I searched and I searched and finally I came across a very beautiful tree. It was just jam packed full of clusters of a beautiful pear shaped red fruit.
The fruits are called wax apples.
Here I am with a big bunch of them.
They are very scrumptious indeed. They are not really apples and they do not taste of wax, thank goodness! They look like they are made of red wax though. They have a very refreshing taste . They are a little bit difficult to describe but they are very crunchy and watery and I would say that they taste like a mixture of apples and cucumbers. They are wonderful for quenching my thirst in this warm weather.
I wish I could take some back with me to Clover Cottage.
Love from Sherbetx
