Wandering Chopsticks...I'm sooo jealous. I didn't make it to the Mekong Delta when I was there back in 2003. My mom said the best food is around the Mekong. Sigh. I went to Vietnam with two high maitenance gf's...who only wanted to SHOP. Thus the reason I travel solo now. Anyways, love your pictures!

Hi Everyone,
Great guesses but only Christine D. seemed to have them all right. :)

I've never heard of langsat but the leaves and growth pattern don't seem to fit the VNese sam bo che. Darn, and here I was hoping someone would help me find the English word.

Hi Beloved,
Are you thinking of dragonfruit?

Oh my goodness--I don't know the names of most of those fruits but I ate some of them when I was in the Mekong Delta area. I also remember a bright pink fruit with white flesh that had black seeds. Sort of like a kiwi but more colorful. Could it be #8?

I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog--discovered it through TigerFish.
