Colombia has lots of fruits for which there are no translations on English. These fruits just don’t seem to exist in Australia, or anywhere else that I’ve been in my life.
The most beautiful of these fruits is the humble guanábana. It’s one of the most fun words to say (try it! The stress is on the á). Th fruit is often about 40cm tall, about 30cm wide. It’s green, and covered in spikes. Beautiful, right?
It’s often turned into juice (actually more like a smoothie – blended up with ice and water or milk, and some unknown quantity of sugar). Jugo de guanábana is sweet and creamy, and delicious.
Thank you Colombia for sharing this elegant fruit with the world!
