Bolivian Food: Chirimoya

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Chirimoya is an interesting looking and delicious tasting fruit common in Bolivia.

It grows on a tree and is made up of several different sections, as you can see in the photo. You pull off each one with your fingers and eat the fruit part, leaving the green rind. Each section has a black seed inside.

The fruit is very sweet and juicy. Should you ever find yourself in Bolivia, I recommend trying a chirimoya!
