EXOTIC Fruits of Vietnam: I have heard that Vietnam produces many exotic fruits I cannot think of them except longans and star fruits. Do many ex-pat individuals in the community enjoy them much? What type of fruits that you see mostly and which do you enjoy the most? I guess these questions can be directed to local natives and long and short term ex-pats. Oh I did enjoy a fruit called chom chom (in CANADA during a visit) a rather hairy red looking type. They were quite expensive $8.99 for 1/2 kilo. Very good though. Any whiskeys made from any of the exotic fruits you will mention?

thank you in advance.

While the article deals mainly with animal infusions, it does mention some rare fruit/plant soaked alcohols. Vietnam does have some fascinating home brew, I've sat in many a house and admired the owners collection of spirits. Sadly, I rarely drink and don't have the gumption to try any of the unusual fermentations. good luck!

Lots of pictures and a little information on Dragon Fruit Wine. The site notes that it will be available

I've never had the wine, but Dragon Fruit can be pretty enjoyable by itself after a meal.

You may want to email the company for additional info and check with Highway Four/Son Tinh when you are in town to see if they have some fruit wine "on tap".

Regarding some of the exotic fruits you asked about, try some mini mango. They are about the size of a small egg and easy to eat. If you head up north by way of Mai Chau, the xoai nho ( little mango I think they are called) are fairly plentiful from roadside vendors.
