Haiku Poem – 熱帯の果実

mountain paths
yellow ornaments in trees
pink surprise

やま あるき みずがし みのる きいろい き

There are many types of fruits in Hawaii. Two of my favorite are Passion Fruit and Guava. Passion Fruit is a reddish, round, fruit that grows on a vine. The taste is tart and sometimes a little sweet. To eat Passion Fruit you cut it in half and scoop out the seeds and flesh to make a juice. The seeds are edible, just a little crunchy. I am not sure where to find Passion Fruit in the wild. Usually my friends give them to me. Guavas in Hawaii are little round yellow fruits with a pink inside that grow on trees. Depending on how ripe they are the taste will be sweet or sour. You can cut it in half with a knife or just bite it to expose the fleshy inside. You can find guava trees all over Hawaii but particularly while hiking in the mountains.
