Fruits from kerala-photo gallery

Welcome to a small fruit gallery with  fruits from kerala-the south Indian state.. Some of the fruits which are commonly seen here in Kerala like guava, bananas, and annona fruit or custard apple known as 'atha chakka' in our local language Malayalam here..their are different variety of fruits like botanical fruits, and culinary fruits based on the nature and taste of  them..

Botanical fruits are those non sweet fruits which we use as vegetables where as culinary fruits are those sweet ones which are often used in desserts and other edibles and also for eating alone...Fruits are again classified into simple,multiple,aggregate etc depending on the way they develop in the plants..

Their are more than 100 types of guava fruits and they can be seen as shrubs and trees...Guava is often referred as a super fruit as i said about mangoes in the previous post..Hmm a super fruit which is rich in vitamins and other nutrient content along with huge likeness of customers for the fruits..guava is often used to make juices, and in ice creams and candies as flavors.nutritional content differs from varities and the most nutritional one is considered to be strawberry guava, contains 4times more vitamin C than an orange..

Being a native of south east Asia their are much verities of the plant seen here in farms..They varies in sizes and tastes from each other,and some are eaten after being ripe as some others are cooked before eating..The plant needs proper irrigation and scarcity of water may break the plantain stems..The above banana fruit is of a different variety, not much seen in kerala, and the individual banana fruits can grow much bigger than the common banana fruits here in kerala..I may show you the ripe banana from this in a later post..Eat a banana every day, for they can give us a number of amino acids our body can't make, and also are great energy suppliers..
 anona or custard apple,fruits from kerala india,anona custard apples in anona plant,fruits pictures,atha chakka
 Red Custard apple or anona fruit.the plant of custard apple is known as annona, and these fruits are much fleshy and juicy with sweet taste when ripe..Also the fruit is called bullock's heart or bull's heart..The leaves of the plant used against cancers and tumors and its said the whole of the tree is useful..

The fruit is considered to be good in treating anemia, a good expectorant, coolant and stimulant. Fruits can give you abundant supply of vitamin C, water and fibre...So never Ever keep them away from your diet......
