Cacao Box from $89.00
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 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. This American football shape-inspired fruit is where Chocolate comes from, but 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.

Tropical Avocado Box from $39.00
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. 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.
Passion Fruit Box from $88.00
We finally got Passion fruit also known as Maracuya, Maracuja, Granadilla and many names all over the world! This fruit is very special. The name of it doesn't come from where you might think. The name was given by the Spanish Catholic Missionaries in the sixteenth century traveling through the South American region where this fruit is native. They called "La flor de las cinco llagas o for de la pasión" in English the fruit of the five wounds since it resembled the wounds of Christ or the fruit of passion so the name passion fruit stuck. Here is the good news. We've been waiting for it the whole year and it's great to finally be able to enjoy it. This fruit packs a punch, flavorwise it has a tropical slightly tart, and sweet taste with an unmistakable aroma. It's no coincidence why it's used in preparing drinks and some countries even make a flavored soda from it. One interesting fact is that Passion Fruit is technically a berry since the whole fruit is fleshy. Passion fruit is high on nutrients, low on calories, and packs an antioxidant punch. It contains fiber, Vitamins A and C, and minerals such as Iron and Potassium. Order your Passionfruit Box Today
Rambutan Box from $77.00
The rambutan, also called Ngoh is a tropical fruit native of Asia. The name rambutan comes from the Malay word that means hairy and when you see one, you’ll understand. Once you peel the skin away, you'll see a beautiful white flesh that has a sweet and sour combination that's pretty unique. It's a close cousin of the lychee in flavor profile but the rambutan is sweeter. The Regular Box contains 5 pounds of Rambutan and the Large Box contains 8 pounds!
Longan Fruit Box from $77.00
Longans are amazing fruits. Have you tried a Dragon's eye? Not the real thing, of course, the little fruit that our Tropifruiters go crazy for. Why? Not hard to guess, they are succulent, sweet, and incredibly juicy. When you bite into the translucent flesh, it feels like it melts in your mouth. The longan is a close cousin of the Lychee and the Rambutan. It comes from the Soapberry tree and it's called dragon's eye due to its contrasting white flesh and dark seed. If you haven't tried Longan, you are in for a treat. If you've tried it, you know what you are in for. If you think a whole box of Longan Fruit is too much, you can create your own tropical fruit box and add longan as one of the fruits in your favorite personalized tropical mix.

Spanish Limes | Mamoncillos | Guineps | Quenepas Box from $87.00
The Spanish Lime is a fruit with a thousand names. It’s known as Mamoncillo, Guinep, Quenepa, Limoncillo, Mamón, Jocote, you get the point. Why does it have so many names? We can only guess that every country that has it, likes it so much they want to make it their own. No joke. People are serious about this little fruit! The Puerto Ricans love it so much that they even have a national festival celebrating the Quenepa, which is how they call it. Other than how it looks similar to a key lime from the outside; the Spanish Lime could not be more different from citrus. It’s actually a cousin of the Lychee, Rambutan, and Longan, some of Tropical Fruit Box’s fan favorites. What do Spanish Limes taste like? The Spanish Lime tastes like a Lychee that married a lemon but without the high citrus notes. It’s tangy and sweet, with a hint of tamarind and it feels refreshing in your mouth. Perhaps that is why it’s a popular summer beach snack. How do you eat them? The skin is like a shell, it cracks open pretty easily, you can cut it with a knife like the civilized person you are, or you can just have an adventure and open it by biting down on it (don’t tell your dentist). Once the soft shell cracks, remove it and you’ll see the peach-colored translucent orange flesh. Put it in your mouth and chew the flesh off the seed. The flesh is pretty stuck to the seed so you are going to have to work for it. When you are done, get rid of the seed and repeat. When you are done, you can order another box. Only while they last.

When roasted, it feels and tastes like baked bread, hence the name. Fun facts about Breadfruit Sir Joseph Banks, a sailor who embarked with Captain Cook to Tahiti in the 18th Century famously said that if you planted 10 breadfruit trees in your life, you or your future generations would never go hungry, we paraphrase of course. It is said that the famous mutiny of the H.M.S Bounty happened because of Breadfruit! The mission of the Bounty was to transplant more than 1000 young breadfruit trees, but they arrived late. Fate would have it that in the months they spent waiting, the crew grew enchanted with the island and didn’t want to leave. Forced to depart, the unhappiness of the crew eventually turned into mutiny. So there you have it, breadfruit has a long history! According to scientists, it has an amazing future in the food security of many nations and the world. Sir Joseph Banks was right!
