Sugarfruit Sellers of Watabung


A taste of paradise

An unmarked roadside stop on the Highlands Highway, about half way between Goroka and Kundiawa, is home to the Sugarfruit sellers of Watabung. You will know you have found it when you see the ropes of yellow passionfruit, and this is one stop that is well worth checking out.

Sugarfruit is a large, sweet passionfruit that has naturalised in the Watabung area and is commonly harvested from the wild. It follows closely after Kulau (green) coconut as my alltime favourite taste of PNG.
