We went to an adventure trip at the Forest Park in Dahilayan, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon last week together with my family. We all had fun while we spend our bonding moments together with my sister and her friend since it was their holiday here in the Philippines.
We had our lunch at Forest Park’s restaurant when I saw this yummy looking red strawberries for sale at the counter. I immediately bought it since my daughter wants to eat it. It tastes so yummy strawberry indeed!
One of the highlights of the ethnic Kaamulan festival that celebrates the customs and traditions of the tribal groups that inhabited in my hometown province in Bukidnon was the agri fair show and display of native fruits, vegetables and other native items such as souvenirs and gift items.
One of the proud Bukidnon food products are sweet bananas from Mt. Kitanglad Agri-Ventures, Inc. (MKAVI) Banana Plantation. MKAVI’s banana plantation in the highlands of Barangay Alanib, Lantapan, Bukidnon. MKAVI is a chief producer of quality highland sweet bananas which employs environmental conservation practices, manifesting the company’s high regard for the environment.
Another one is from Dole South Skyland Banana Plantation which is located at Barangay Dagumbaan, Maramag, Bukidnon. This 800-hectare banana plantation contributes to the supply of bananas for exportation.
Where you buy your food is very important and it is usually better to buy fresh produce from a big supermarket where there is a high turnover and the shelves are refilled every day. You just have to always inspect the produce before you buy it and don’t buy anything that looks too dry, discolored, limp, soft or generally not fresh.
Buying fresh fruit and vegetables from your local market is often the most economical choice. There is usually a much wider variety of the same types of fruit and vegetable, although care must still be taken when buying.
Supermarkets are much more strict and will only accept fruits if they are the correct size, shape and quality, whereas markets will more or less accept any produce whatever the shape or size.
