Taiwan is known by many as the "Kingdom of Fruit." The subtropical island-nation produces fruit all year round, from strawberries and peaches to pineapples and mangoes.

Spring to summer is the best period to taste the fruits of Taiwan, especially guavas, bananas, lychees, watermelons and sugar-apples.

Fruit is sold at markets, street stands, small and large grocery stores, and also convenient stores.

With so many to choose from, “Good Eye Taipei,” a new bilingual Taipei city guide, shares five places in the city to taste the fruits of Taiwan.
