A taste of the tropics, delivered right to your door! Started by a Cuban-American whose house was always filled with tropical produce. She set out to make these hard to find fruits accessible to all by offering a huge selection of tropical, exotic fruits & roots that can be shipped nationwide.
My order, pictured above, is the Taste the Tropics Fruit Box. It contains a variety of 16+ pounds of in season tropical fruits. My box included the following: PinkGlow Pink Pineapple, Papaya, Tropical Avocados, Dragon Fruit, Red Bananas, Pineapple and Tropical Mangoes. Everything was delivered fresh, almost ripe and ready to enjoy. Also it’s worth noting that they include cards for each fruit specifying it’s origin, when it’s ready to be consumed as well as a fact about the fruit!
With the exception of Pineapple & Mangoes this was my first time trying the rest of the fruits. Some fun fruit facts: papayas are great for your digestive system. Red Bananas taste like a regular banana with a hint of raspberry sweetness. Tropical avocados skin stays green and are 4x the size of a regular avocado. Dragon fruit grows on a cactus and it’s pulp tastes like a combination of kiwi and pear. And last but not least – the PinkGlow Pink Pineapple. I have never seen such a thing until receiving this box. The pink coloring is attributed to an increased concentration of a plant nutrient grown in the rich soils of Costa Rica. It’s less acidic than a regular pineapple and has a unique sweet flavor.
I truly enjoyed the experience of trying out fruits I would have otherwise not had the opportunity to do so to on my own. I was impressed with the quality and love that they offer a freshness guaranteed policy so you can rest assured you will be completely satisfied with your box. These fruits have me yearning for a trip to Miami!
