Time for another adventure into the world of fruit! This is an anon (annona or sugar-apple according to the Internet.) Damaris, a friend and one of the artists in town, saw one that was almost ripe as we were walking one day. She promised she’d let me know when it was ready and we would give it a try. It came from a tree near her neighbor’s house.
I went back a few days later when I got the call.
You pull open the anon and inside is a whitish pulp that you suck off black seeds. It tastes similar to a guayaba, another popular fruit here. It was also the Damaris’ grandson’s first time eating anon. It was a hit!
I’m still finding interesting fruits even after a year and a half. Who knows what’ll be next…
