Costa Rica Day Trips &
Exploring the Entire Country:
Sitting here. . thinking about how much fun it is to share with all of you the many exciting adventures experienced in Costa Rica by so many people. Books have been written. . movies have been made. . lives have been changed by this thing we lovingly call,
"The Pura Vida Lifestyle"!
What a wonderful lifestyle it is! Here's what happened. .
Our theme for the next few writings is to highlight the many amazing fruits here in Costa Rica. . Today, let's learn more about the GUABA! This is most commonly known as the "ICE CREAM BEAN"! And what a wonderful fruit it is. . Here's what you need to know. .
The Ice Cream Bean Tree [inga spectabilis] is a legume tree with puffy flowers. Inflorescences with many long white stamens bring pollinators to the flowers' nectar. The pollinated flower becomes long, green-and-brown fruits. Guaba fruit has pods that are flat and woody. Its fruit has fleshy white meat that attracts mammals and birds. They open the pods and eat the fruit, thereby spreading the guaba seeds for the plant.
In Latin America, this tree is planted for shade and lumber. Its branches have a wide profile, so it works well for agroforestry purposes, providing good shade for other crops. The tree is also grown for its sweet fruit, which is popular at fruit stands in Central America. The flowers produce pods that can grow up to 3 feet long and range from straight to curved. The pods are then cracked open, revealing an edible pulp. The seeds of Inga edulis are not commonly eaten as they’re very bitter. The pulp is often described as tasting like vanilla ice cream or even a bit like cinnamon, with the texture of cotton candy.
Ask around when you're here. . search these out. . and ENJOY!
