Tropical Fruits

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

March as Nutrition Month is here and it is time for some fun ideas for back to basics and we interpret that to be fruits and veggies. We will be emailing you the comments we receive from our subscribers.

Here is one we made up for you with tropical fruits:

Tropical fruits are in season now and we found an array in our local supermarket and farmer’s market. Whole Foods has them too and you can find more in ethnic grocery stores.

Canestel is a yellow fruit that tastes like egg custard; it should be served very ripe. It looks good if you serve it scooped it like ice cream.

Ugly fruit looks like a big grapefruit and it tastes like lemonade candy. It is fun to pair it with grapefruit and pomello for comparison. Keep refrigerated.

Mango, passion fruit and papaya are more common and are wonderful when ripened and sliced.

Sapote - pictured on the top right below - is known as chocolate fruit and is quite beautiful when cut - it tastes like chocolate and has the consistency of avocado when ripe.

Carambola is shaped like a star and is called star fruit.

There are many types of oranges on the market. One thing that is useful is to show how to peel a nectarine and then wrap in plastic so it is ready to go for snacks and

lunch boxes.

If you would like to see photos of the fruits we used, check out our blog at foodandhealth.com/blog. Our mixed tropical fruit platter is pictured below.
