  1. Platano (Plantain)
  2. banana tree under blue cloudy sky
  3. Granadilla (Passionfruit)
  4. Papaya
  5. Freshly cut pineapple
  6. Pitaya (Dragonfruit)
  7. Tomate de Artbol (Tree tomato)
  8. Avocado (3 for a dollar)
  9. Cacao (Pure chocolate)
  10. Chia (Chan)
  11. Amaranto (Amaranth)
  12. Pepitoria (pumpkin seeds)
  13. Habas (lima beans)
