Here in Guatemala we have a wide array of fruits and veggie to choose from at the local market. Most of the produce is grown right here in country, while a few things do come in from Mexico. We easily find bananas, limes, avocados, garlic, mangos, pineapple, melons, zucchini, broccoli, carrots, potatoes, and beets (to name a few). Bananas, Sugar Cane and Coffee are Guatemala's top commodities, but we are always interested in the lesser known produce.
We decided to take a peek through the local market to see what we could find and bring some interesting fruits back to the HIPTIPICO HQ to learn more!
1) STAR FRUIT aka CARAMBOLA
2) Guanábana which apparently in English is
3) Granadilla (inside
jelly-like pulp with black edible seeds!)
4) Nances (tropical tiny fruit with pit inside)
We tasted all of these live on snapchat, so be sure to tune in and not miss our next session! @hiptipico. Love our handmade friendship bracelets? Find them here!
