Romantic Hanoi in Dracontomelon harvest season
The Indochina dragon plum, a historic tree in Hanoi, is revered for its ability to shade pathways, create magnificent carpets of leaves and flowers, and bear delicious fruit.
Summer in Hanoi is considered the season for harvesting fruits, including the Indochina dragonplum (Dracontomelon duperreanum) or sau in Vietnamese.
The tree is considered a thousand-year-old heritage of Hanoi, thanks to its ability to shade the streets, create beautiful carpets of leaves and flowers, and bear delicious fruit.
Over a century has passed, and the first sau trees remain in Hanoi’s street, standing strong in inclement weather.
