Fruits like grapefruit and Buddha’s hands are commonly used as offerings and gifts in the southern region on Tet. Ky Da Grapefruit, a big-sized type of pomelo, is three or four times heavier than regular ones. A massive Ky Da grapefruit weighs up to 10 kilograms, carrying a price tag of over VND500,000 (US$20.3). Apart from Ky Da grapefruit, Buddha’s hand fruit is also a favorite on Tet. The fruit, hailing from the northern region, is often placed on five-fruit trays during Vietnam’s biggest traditional holiday.
