In my last blog I wrote about the lack of fresh vegetables here in Las Terrenas. What I didn’t properly appreciate is the tremendous variety of fruit. At our local fruit stand there are so many things that we don’t recognize. I did find Passionfruit and it turned out to be delicious.

A little tart like citrus but the flavor is exquisite.
Wikipedia said that the fruit is purple but ours are more a dull yellow or light brown. Maybe a different kind. They’re simple to eat. Cut in half and scoop out the inner seeds and flesh, throw away the rind. Wikipedia is great for finding fruits but then Youtube has videos showing what to do with it. I’m trying to remember the world without the Internet.
