Buying Tropical Fruit in Georgetown

Hi

We will be in Georgetown from June 6th to the 25th. I am a great fan of tropical fruit from mango, rambutan, mangosteen to pomelo and soursop. I will arrange a visit to a Durian Farm and the Tropical Fruit Farm but wondered if tropical fruit is widely available in the street stalls and markets of Georgetown?

Thanks

Daniel

Hi Daniel -

Yes they are - go to any markets - Pulau Tikus for example. Also the supermarkets sell them too - including Tesco.

Fruits are widely available in Penang, whether along the road side or in the markets as what penangnite and foxhound have said. But do bear in mind that some of the fruits you are looking for or hope to eat might not be in season at that particular time.

Since you are going to the farms, best to check with them of what fruits they are going to have straight off the trees.
