The most common fruit found in Vietnam includes Coconut, Banana, Pineapple, Mango, Guava, Durian, Mangosteen and Dragon Fruit to name a few. In northern Vietnam and central highland areas, where the temperature is cooler with four separate seasons, farmers also grow temperate fruits such as apple, strawberry, cherry, grape, peach, or pear, making the collection of fruits in Vietnam an extremely rich one. As demand for these products continues to increase, more and more Fruit Juice, Canned Fruit, Dried Fruit and Fruit Puree producers in Vietnam will continue to turn to Kosher Certification to assist them in opening new markets.
