sungai pelek dragon fruit farm
brother yh told me about this place, so i just got to check it out!
sungai pelek is a cowboy town just a 10 minute drive from sepang. yh spilled the beans about the goodies of this little small town.
of which, the favourite has to be this dragon fruit farm!
this is how the fruit is planted. this is quite a large farm...
anyway, we went there mainly for the dragon fruit enzyme. the prices we get in kuala lumpur is couple times higher than buying directly from the farm.
other than dragon fruit enzyme, there's papaya enzyme, pineapple enzyme and aloe very enzyme too.
best seller and best tasting is of course, the dragon fruit enzyme.
curiously, they managed to grow grapes too!
some "malaysian" variety. quite tiny and quite sourish i was told.
this farm is very interesting as other than dragon fruit (and grapes!), they managed to grow passion fruit as well.
oh, did i mention their pineapples are the best pineapple i have ever tasted?
bountiful of dragon fruit!
these are quite large and go for rm10 for 3.
so far we have been to this farm twice and all i can say is the trip is definitely worthwhile.
the folks at the farm are very friendly. these are nice decent hardworking folks who toil the earth and harvest such beautiful produce from mother earth.
unlike bankers... or engineers... ha ha!
perhaps one day i'll grow my own fruits too!
my gratitude towards yh for recommending me this place!
