I’ll be visiting Jejudo for the first time tomorrow. This island off the southern coast of the peninsula is known as the “Hawaii of Korea.” Grown in Jejudo, hallabong (한라봉) gets its name because it is shaped like the volcanic Mount Halla. More expensive than mandarin oranges/tangerines/clementines (귤), they are a hybrid fruit that was created in the 197os. I hope to taste a good one while visiting there, the one’s I’ve eaten in Seoul have only disappointed. Hallabong (한라봉) are said to be bigger, sweeter, and low in acidity.
