Fruits and Veggies



Fruits and Veggies
These are pictures of fruits and veggies I grow, harvest, buy and/or eat.
They're all click-able for enlarging BTW...

The 'cooking bananas' I eat a lot of now. They're a kind of plantain. I eat 'em ripe. This is what they look like when growing.

This is a partial racime (AKA rack) of 'cooking bananas' after harvesting. They'll be ripe in a few days.

I'm holding the HI apple bananas I used to eat a lot in the early logs. This is back in 1994 before I started eating this way.

These are papayas growing. It's a round type. They are light to medium orange when ripe. There is an avocado tree in the background in the center, katuk on the left in back, and apple bananas in there somewhere..

Basil is in the foreground here (it's flowering here) as well as some chayote vines, papaya beyond it on the right and left. Avocado is in the center, and banana leaves are visible to the right of that above. There are some peppers and various other veggies in there too, but aren't visible.

bowl of Jamaican Lilikoi (orange ones), bowl of strawberry guava (red ones) with rose myrtle berries (I call 'em fuzzy blueberries), sprig of katuk (eat leaves, not stems except at tips)

It was tempting to just pull up a chair and eat, heh.
