The Royal Project 44 fair features produce and products from the North at CentralWorld from Aug 8-18.
"His Majesty's Fruits" and the "Prince of Love" multicoloured rose from the northern highlands will be the highlights of the Royal Project 44 fair, which will be at CentralWorld from Aug 8 to 18.
Held in cooperation with the Royal Project Foundation, the 11-day event will feature a large variety of produce and products from many of HM the King's personal projects alongside more than 3,000 different products from the Royal Project.
Learn more about HM the King's Fruits, which comprise Peterson and Buccaneer avocados, Taiwanese P2 persimmons, Japanese fuyu persimmons and kiwi fruit.
Once rare and exotic, they are now grown in the North under HM's personal projects with the aim to generate income for local farmers and give customers an ever wider choice.
This is also the first chance to witness the "Prince of Love" rose, a cross breed between yellow and pink roses.
The annual showcase also features other outstanding products including figs, sweet passion fruit, mulberries, Cape gooseberries (locally known as golden bell), mini pumpkins, Japanese yam, organic Napa cabbage, azuki beans, broken brown rice, black soybeans, highland brown rice and half-milled highland brown rice, smoked sturgeon, Cape gooseberry juice, cereal bars, smoked rabbit, feta cheese, buffalo milk mozzarella, fruit and vegetable-flavoured chips, butternut squash soup and mushroom soup.
