10 Caribbean Fruits to Try Before You Die


The Caribbean is a fabulous place to live! The gorgeous beaches, the friendly people and the diverse culture are all great but one of the highlights of being a resident of this part of the world is wide variety of fruits available. I'd pick a mango over marshmallows any day!

Yes, you can find some of these fruits in groceries across the world but in the Caribbean once you know the right person or live in the right area, you never have to pay a dime!

One point before we jump into the list of delicious delicacies. Some of these fruits while not indigenous to the Caribbean can be found in abundance and they are delicious so I'm including them! I found it so hard to describe the taste of each fruit but they're all sweet or tart (sometimes both) and are an absolute delicious burst of flavor!


Cocoa Pod

Mango

Seaside Grapes

Genip

Passion Fruit

Pomegranate

Guava

West Indian Cherries

Papaya 

Pomerac

  5. I love mangos and those grapes looked delicious. What is the taste of the cocoa pod? I've never heard of such a fruit, its looks interesting though.

    1. The seeds in the cocoa pod are what is used to make chocolate! The taste of the cocoa pod is hard to describe! It's creamy and has a mild flavor. How sweet it is varies. But it's very tasty!
