Fruit glorious Fruit
Tropical fruit is bountiful to say the least, here in Northern Nicaragua where the soil is some of the most fertile in the world. Papayas can be 3 feet long, watermelon redder than thought possible (and as sweet as it looks), avocados the size of your head (I'm only slightly exaggerating). http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif
Most people might not know that although we're in the midst of a global food crisis, Nicaragua still has the cheapest food in all of Central America. Especially produce.
Some of the fruit you can find here in abundance is:
-Pineapple (gold and white varieties)
-The best tomatoes in the world
-Huge variety of Bananas
-Huge variety of Mangoes
The most expensive fruit on this list is a watermelon for $2. I can't get enough!
