What I loved about Colombia – well, one of the many things I can list without even trying – was being presented at each turn by increasingly bizarre fruits. These tropical designs – whether beautiful, alien-like or as if put together hastily by hyper children – always deserved a second look, and a happy moment digging away at them with a spoon.
Here, we’re in San Cipriano in the presence of a fruit whose name I’ve entirely forgotten which wouldn’t look at all strange placed in the middle of a 1990s Super Mario game. Outside: bobbly yellow, soft rubbery skin. Inside: sweet, white flesh dotted with smooth black seeds. Crazy? Sure. Yummy? Yep!
