Tasty Fruits and Vegetables in Peru

When travelling in Peru, you notice quickly that it has a lot to offer considering colorful and beautiful fruits and vegetables. This is due to its different types of climates: beaches, mountains and jungle. While exploring this beautiful land many delicious delights can be found, from tropical fruits in the jungle, to all different sorts of corn in the Andes. If you are in Peru, there are certain fruits and vegetables you do not want to miss out on.

Peruvian fruits

To start with the Peruvian fruits, there are some sorts that you must try. First, there is the ‘Camu Camu’. This is a red/purple cherry like fruit that comes from a river side tree in the Amazon and it has a very acidic taste. Therefore, it is combined with milk or water in a blender, along with sugar.

Second, there is the ‘Chirimoya’. This fruit is from the Andean Highlands and is white on the inside with black seeds, and green on the outside. The name is Quechua and means ‘cold seeds’ because the seeds are growing on a higher altitude.

The third fruit is the ‘Granadilla’. This fruit is very flabby on the inside, with a hard and slippery orange skin. The seeds inside are a bit sour and covered by a slimy, sweet juice.

The fourth fruit that cannot be missed during a stay in Peru, is the ‘Tuna’. This fruit comes from the cactus plant. While pealing you have to be careful since there may be some needles that can poke you. This fruit is available in three different sorts: white, orange and red. The taste is very sweet and it contains a lot of liquid. While eating be careful since there may be some hard seeds. In almost every city you can find ‘Tuna Ladies’ on the side of the road, who can peel the tunas for you so you can eat them out of a plastic bag. Ask for the ’3 por un sol’ (3 for 1) discount.
