Korean fruits?

I'm off to South Korea on Friday, for nine days, and would welcome any recommendations on Korean fruit I ought to try while I'm there. I know February/March is not prime fruit season most places in the Northern Hemisphere, but I'll try what I can. I've got a local guide, but he's not as fruit-centric as some people (such as me), so I don't want to miss something.

It's not the right time of year, but Asian pears are magnificent over there (or so I'm told). If I remember I'll be sure and ask Huber if he has any fruits your should look out for.

Hi EFL,
I suggest that you try Bokbunja, a fruit wine made from Rubus coreanus, a black raspberry native to East Asia. This beverage is said to counteract apoplexy, demantia, and especially impotence.

The chief fresh fruit produced in Korea at this time is citrus, of course.

I think the obesity is very danger for everybody, is like a pump that can explot any time. So is necesary to take care exercising and taking good and healthy food and stop eating junk food.If you eat more vegetables or fruits will see a big difference in our life. The life is too short, so we need to take care of us every single day for enjoy the things that the life gave to us. I bought my house through costa rica homes for sale and i enjoy it every day.
