Exotic Fruits to Try on Your Jewish Travel Experience

by Kosher River Cruise Kosher Tour Operator
Travelling is all about taking risks and pushing yourself out of comfort zones. Taking risks doesn't have to be limited to things as terrifying as sky diving from an airplane or crawling through a 200 ft. an ever-narrowing tunnel, sometimes, it could be something like trying an exotic fruit!

Asia is well known for its exotic tastes. What the Western world would consider taboo in terms of culinary choices, the East sees as an everyday ingredient. Are you willing to take the risk of trying something new during your elegant Jewish tours, Mekong river experience?



The king of all fruits, the saying goes, "tastes like heaven but smells like hell." No one can pinpoint what durian smells like and what it tastes like. Some people claim it smells like their worst nightmare but taste like vanilla ice cream. Durian is characterized by its spiky exterior, creamy and pulpy seeds, and pungent aroma. This fruit is enjoyed by the locals but avoided like the plague by visitors, so are you up for the challenge?

Dragon Fruit 

Dragon Fruit

Indigenous to Southeast Asia, Pitaya or the Dragon fruit is difficult to open but worth the wait. What makes the fruit so special is that it bleeds upon opening. You can drain out the liquid and drink the juice that is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Once the juice has drained, you can dig into the white flesh speckled with black, edible seeds. Dragon fruit is particularly refreshing in the summertime. Just make sure not to wear white if you plan to open it on your own. 

Chom Chom


Probably the most peculiar looking fruit you will come across in Asia, the Chom Chom or Rambutan resembles a hairy red ball. But don't worry, the spikes won't hurt you. They're so soft that they bend in the wind. The Chom Chom tastes very similar to lychee but juicier. It's a bit of a pain to open, but the trick is to squeeze it between your palms and dig your nails in to pry it apart as soon as you see the fruit crack open. 



You've seen it in candy form, but you most likely haven't seen tamarind in fruit form. It resembles a brown bean but with an exterior shell that you can pull off to reveal the sweet, pulpy fruit inside. You can eat it ripe for the sweetness or cook it raw to add sourness to your dishes. Either way, it's delicious.
