Tropical fruit

rworange | May 18, 2010 11:14 AM

As I've been googling about fruit and vegetables that are new to me in Guatemala, I've come across sites with beautiul photos and great information. They are not confined to Guatemala or even Central America, but produce that can be found in Tropical climates world wide.

I thought I'd use this thread to put those links as I find them. Sometimes trying to search the web for a specific type of produce can be difficult.

This site not only has fabulous photos but two nice charts indicating when the fruit is in-season and another page that lists more produce along with the botonical names ... the best way to get correct info on the web as the same piece of produce will have different names in different countries

Some produce on that site that are new to me: Lansium, Copoazu, Imbe, Noni, Cas

Columbian produce that includes:Chontaduro, Uchuva, Papayuela, Mazorca, Lulo, Habas, Guatilla, Granadilla, Curuba, Arracacha
