Fresh Fruits

Being on a tropical island, you sure want fresh tropical fruits. While you´d expect to get plenty of them in shops, you usually have to find alternatives. On Mahé you´ll get lots of fruits on Sir Selwyn Clarke Market and on small "fruit-tables" along the road - especially in the south-eastern part. But be aware: not all fruits are always ready to eat. Some need to ripen for a few days, which might not be possible if you have to get home soon. So ask for fruits that are ready to eat. Most of the time you´ll find Mangos, Bananas, Papayas and Coconut, but depending on the season you might also get Carambola (Starfruit), Dragon Fruit and others. Be sure to taste something new like Soursop, when you get the chance.
