The surprises of Malaysian produce just keep on coming! Presenting to you Mango Plums... or is it Plum Mangoes... or Mini Mangoes... or Buah Kundang? Take your pick, they’re one and the same! It’s my first time being introduced to these wee munchkins by @fruitsfarm_inthecity. A soft yet durable edible sour skin encases the sweetest mango-flavoured flesh with a plum-like juiciness and a hairy non-edible seed.
Mango Plums are the best fruit discovery I’ve made in a really long time. I told my mum about it thinking I was going to blow her mind, and she nonchalantly said, “Small orange fruit right? Aiya ya la Buah Kundang. I eat so many times already.” NOT SINCE I WAS BORN SHE HASN’T. And if she has, what a naughty little mum she’s been.
