A visit to el campo

Last weekend my friend Maritza took me out to another friend’s chacra (little farm). Raimunda was picking mangoes when we got there. We walked around picking mangoes, starfruit, limes, coconuts and mamey (https://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/morton/mamey.html). There was also a gigantic honey beehive, but I couldn’t get a good photo.
Raimunda cut the coconuts open and we shared the coconut water while eating a delicious mamey.
So lucky to come home with a big bag of fruit!

    1. When I had it before, I would have described it as the texture of avocado with the flavor of dates. This time, the texture was more crisp (maybe because it was so fresh?), and the flavor more flowery. It also makes great ice cream. 😁
