Malaysian First Day Cover - Malaysian Fruits - Issued 17 July 2014
Malaysia is blessed with a vibrant tropical climate where perennial heat and abundant rainfall permit a wide variety of delicious fruits to flourish. Although many of the Malaysian fruits are indigenous, there are some which have been introduced from other tropical regions and are cultivated widely to become a part of Malaysia's economy and culture. Some Malaysian fruits such as the durian and mangosteen are seasonal while others such as jackfruits and star fruits are easily available throughout the year. Seasonal fruits are generally available between June and August and between November and February.
