Seasonal summer Korean fruit. You may wonder why I'm posting what seems like regular watermelon, peaches, nectarines and concord grapes - but there is something different about these fruits that are available in abundance during the summer in Korea. Fruits in Korea are very seasonal and some are only available at certain times of the year. The price, freshness, availability and taste really depend according to this as well. When a certain fruit is in season, they are incredibly sweet, juicy and delicious! I don't think I've had fruit that's sweeter than the ones in Korea! Get these summer gems while they are still around!
Korean Watermelon (수박 - SooBak)
Korean Peaches (복숭아 - BokSoongAh)
Korean Nectarines (천도 복숭아 - JunDo BokSoongAh)
Korean Grapes (포도 - PohDoh...these are 거봉포도 - GuhBong PohDoh)
Here are 3 reasons why buying seasonal fruit in Korea is a good idea:
1) They are actually available to buy!
2) Super sweet, fresh, and ripe!
3) Much much much cheaper!
If you end up buying too much or just want to stock up on the great fruit that's available only for a limited period of time, I like to buy it and then cut it up to freeze. A wide variety of frozen fruits aren't readily found in Korea - so make your own frozen fruit ready to throw in whenever you want a smoothies! I love having watermelon smoothies mixed with my Vanilla whey protein powder, chia seeds and almond butter I just got from my most recent iherb order! Can't wait to make a peach smoothie next time!
