Cacao Fruit Box from $89.00 $119.00
Cacao Fruit also called Cacao pods is not what you'd expect. It's much better! Did you know that the literal translation for Cacao’s scientific name means “Food of the Gods”? The Olmecs, an ancient civilization from what is now Mexico, were the first to use Cacao Fruit over 3,500 years ago. They obviously didn’t know what they had because if they did, we’d all be speaking Olmec right now… Instead, the just the airport in Brussels, Belgium sells over 800 tons of chocolate every year but, we digress. Cacao Fruit and Chocolate Cacao Pods are these American football shape-inspired fruits and coincidentally are where Chocolate comes from. Yes, the name is a little confusing and we get a lot of people asking for cocoa fruit, cocoa, cacao... does it even matter, at the end it all comes form the cacao bean that lives inside the fruit. The taste couldn’t be any more different than the delicacy we’ve been groomed to gift to our loved ones. The white flesh has a pretty delicious zingy sweet flavor, it’s hard to describe its tart, fruity, citrusy flavor with mango and pineapple notes. The seeds are the ones used to actually make Chocolate and when you bite into them, you can taste what unprocessed pure chocolate is like. The regular box contains 8 pounds of Cacao Fruits and the large box has 16 pounds of this Food of the Gods. Don’t wait, order your box of Cacao fruit today.
Tropical Avocado Box from $59.00
If you haven’t tried Tropical Avocados, you are in for a treat. To my family, the Tropical Avocado has always been known as an Aguacate, pronounced (ah-gwa-kah-tee). This variety is a staple food in the Caribbean and Latin America where it’s been the most popular variety for generations. Tropical Avocados are also known as green skin avocados because of their shiny and gorgeous shade of green. They are a source of good fats, are hearty, yummy, and are full of nutrients. How do Tropical Avocados taste like? When it comes to taste, they are pretty similar to the Haas avocado although slightly sweeter. They are creamy, luscious, and delicious. They spread very easily and have a buttery and creamy smooth texture. They have a light yellow and green color inside, and the seed can be brittle but that’s OK. The reality is that they are very similar to the avocados you are used to. How are Tropical Avocados better? Larger in size: The first thing you’ll notice is that they are humongous compared to the varieties you can buy at the supermarket. Each Tropical Avocado is about the equivalent of 4 Haas avocados. You can prep just one and feed your whole family. Longer cut life: One of my pet peeves with those other avocados is that they turn black and the flavor changes right away, in the industry they call that oxidizing. The Tropical Avocados oxidize much slower which means that you can cut them and leave them out for longer. You can even keep one in the fridge wrapped in foil for two to three days after you cut them. How do you know when they are ripe? These avocados are ripe while the skin is still green, which is a little confusing if you are not used to them. Luckily, there is a simple way to know when they are ready. How? When you squeeze them and they give in just a little, they are ready to eat. Where are they from? These avocados are grown in the tropics on a beautiful farm in the Dominican Republic and in the off season over there, they come from beautiful and sunny Florida, where we are based. They grow with plenty of natural rain in nutrient-rich soil. They are naturally large, non-GMO and delicious. Our Large Box comes with about 8 to 10 Large Tropical Avocados. Our Regular box has 4 Large Tropical Avocados.
Mamey Fruit Box from $89.00
Mamey Fruit is absolutely delicious! We call it mamey, but it's also called sapote, not to be confused with black sapote, which is a different type of fruit altogether. They are so yummy that it's hard to eat just one. We had so many requests for Mamey that we had to create a box just for it! These red mamey fruits are from right here in Florida and are humongous! Mamey sapote is a medium to large fruit with a thick, semi-rough skin that ranges in color from light to dark brown. Underneath the skin, the flesh is soft, creamy, and dense with a fine, smooth consistency. The flesh of Mamey sapote ranges in color from orange, and red, to salmon. Within the center of the flesh, there is one elliptical seed with a glossy, black-brown hue. Don't eat the seed! What does mamey taste like? The flavor of mamey is like a cross between a pumpkin and a sweet potato, with hints of caramel and chocolate. It's truly unlike anything else you've ever tasted! Order a box, have a nice mamey shake, or just eat them with a spoon and if you have a couple left, take the pulp out with a spoon, put them in a freezer bag, and you'll have mamey for a few more times! Our Mamey Fruit Boxes make the perfect gift for any occasion or a delicious treat for yourself. Order your tropical box of mamey today, and let me know what you think when you get it.
