Summer is the season for new and mysterious fruits at the local fruit stands in San Pedro. I stopped by this one yesterday (across from Ramon’s Village) to test two that are new to me. Only $2bzd a bag…so why not.
I’ll save the worst for last. Sea Grapes. They grow from trees in beachy areas and look just like clusters of real grapes. But be careful before you pop this one in your mouth, it has a huge pit. There is very little flesh. The grapes are dark purple when ripe. I can’t even describe the taste. And my Belizean buddies even stayed away from this one. Apparently they are abudant right now and better for jellies and wines than just eating.
