When I'm in Costa Rica there are three staple drinks they make from fresh fruits and this fruit is one of them. For a reason. Tasty

There are far too many uses for this fruit to describe here, but I will give you a few ideas. In the short description I spoke of juice - that is the only way I have had it myself, cold and sweetened, mixed with some water on ice. It has been known to be eaten out of hand when the fruit is fully ripe. Unripe in the Bahamas, they cook it over coals till the skin bursts and its hot pulp dipped in wood ashes.
It is an ingredient in Worcestershire sauces and barbecue sauces. The seeds can be roasted, soaked removing the seedcoat the fried or boiled. High in protein, potassium and vitamin A, this is a treat that will take you back to Africa where it originated from.
Fresh Gardens are growers and shippers of rare tropical fruits. Many items you may have never heard of, and that is what makes them so exciting. Most have been brought from South and central America and Asia. Although well known in those areas very few know of them here in the United States. That's my job as a grower of these items: to excite and get you into trying these exotic tropical fruit for the first time!
There are only a few areas in the United states these are grown and The Redland which is a 100 year plus historic agricultural growing region is one. We are south of Miami in Homestead just before you enter the keys. You are invited to vist our farm for free as a tropical fuit of the month customer. We grow for you !!
