Do You Know Your Apples From Your Oranges?

Guest blogger, Colin Atkins, Team Relocations Account Director, tells us of Team's recent fruity quiz at the London Totally Expat Show.

Reviewing a Singapore Country Guide a while back, I came across a reference to the 'King of Fruit' Durian which I had come across (and was brave enough to taste) while living in SE Asia in the '90s.

I asked colleagues if they had heard of this fruit which can weigh up to 3kg, has thorny skin and such an overpowering odour (rotting flesh?) that its consumption is actually banned on public transport and in hotels in some parts of South East Asia. Apparently this fruit is particularly favoured by Orangutans, so perhaps the hotel ban is not so much related to the smell after all...

Anyway, my colleagues had not come across the Durian, but Trevor spoke about the Cacao Fruit that he came across at the Hershey's Plantation in St. Lucia (flash or what..?), which has inedible flesh and 20-40 cacao beans inside which are best consumed (singly!) by dissolving slowly in the mouth and are known locally as 'Jungle M&Ms'. 

Tony on the other hand had an interesting conversation with a supplier in Cameroon some time ago who was very excited that the African Mango had 'hit' the USA and was being touted as the latest weight loss silver bullet - it seems the seeds of this mango, native to Cameroon, have been in use as a dietary supplement for a few centuries or so.

Last Saturday Team in the Netherlands held an auction for Saksham during their staff party. The auction was a major success! There were great items such as; a boat trip, a mystery dinner, paintball at the beach, golf clinic, make over, jewellery etc.

Cees Zeevenhooven, Group Director, was the auctioneer and did a great job. For some items there was real competition between people who really wanted to have the last bid! The total raised for Saksham was € 1,145.
