Sometimes the ugliest fruits
hide the sweetest surprise.
Guanabanas are huge (the size of a football), heavy (10 lbs. or more) and covered with sharp spikes . . . not the most inviting fruit to pick up at the market. But what a delicious surprise awaits you inside. Guanabanas are prized for their snow white custard pulp . . . which is described as a cross between strawberry, pineapple, banana and coconut. No wonder its juice nectar is a favorite in Colombian fruit drinks. Throw one to a friend . . .
