American philosopher Henry David Thoreau once said, “Live in each season as it passes: breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the seasonal fruit.” Every season brings in a set of climatic changes that not only affects the surroundings but also the human body. To accommodate the changing seasons without falling sick, we turn to seasonal fruits and vegetables for the best nutritional value. They are power-packed with all essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. For example, during summer, the body gets dehydrated, and the energy levels witness fluctuation. While drinking water and lemonade is a good solution, nothing beats the nutritional balance provided by fruits. Watermelons, litchi, mangoes, champagne grapes, muskmelon, and limes are some of the seasonal fruits relished during peak sunny days.
Today, we will introduce you to a less explored or underrated summer fruit which is a solution to your majority of summer issues. We are talking about tadgola, also known as ice apple. Tadgola is a translucent fruit, which is soft and fleshy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Much like litchi. It is available in states like West Bengal, Bihar, Maharashtra and southern regions of India.
Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, in an Instagram post, listed down five signs why you need to eat tadgola this summer.
