Do not forget to stock up on this festive staple at FairPrice, which stocks a range of popular variants.
An easy-to-peel sweet treat, Ponkan tangerines from Taiwan are traditionally popular gifts during the auspicious season with their generous size and juicy flavour.
Kinno oranges from Pakistan have a unique squat shape and a flavourful taste under their smooth, glossy and clingy skin.
Jiaokan oranges from China feature a more chewy texture, thicker and glossy skin, and a longer shelf life. If you do not have a sweet tooth, opt for these less sweet oranges instead.
Lastly, the Lukans from China are known for being one of the sweetest and juiciest variants, identified by a smooth skin with few wrinkles. Slice or peel them for a delicious citrus surprise.
Get creative by making a colourful yusheng out of fruits so that you can enjoy traditions with a healthy twist.
Shred fruits into strips to resemble longevity noodles and toss them for prosperity.
The rest of the ingredients can be replaced by red cherry, strawberry, pomelo, mini watermelon, rock melon, fresh Indonesian pineapple, mango and dragon fruit.
