Strange Fruits

I live a life in Spanglish, surrounded by exotic flowers, bright colors, blooming nature. Here are some of the things I eat regularly now. Ten years ago, prior to moving to Guatemala, I either didn’t know these existed or rarely to never ate them:

  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)
  14. Kombucha/Jun tea
  15. Maracuya
  16. Bee pollen
