What are some yummy tropical fruits to look out for?
Before you even get out of San Jose look for the corner fruit vendors selling whatever is in season. At this time of year look for Pejevaillis – an amazing fruit of a palm tree that is often stewed in a salty brine and served warm. Pejevaillis have more protein than eggs and offer grounding energy. If they are really ripe they taste and digest awesomely raw! If you have never been to the tropics before, you might also discover the wonderful tastes of guayaba, many kinds of mangos and papayas, starfruit, and many others… Mammo chinos – furry little balls of life juice, yumm! Guanabana – Look for the green footballs in the market, and get ready for a treat as you rip off sections of white nectar and dive into the ‘soursap’ Beriba – (aka Cheremoya) imagine an oversized artichoke filled with custard pudding!
