Welcome to the 3rd and final part of our Grenada food report 2013. In this report we’ll be looking at various fruit and vegetables we found growing around the island and from local shops.
I must say, Grenada is lush with fruit and veg. Everywhere we went we saw fruit trees galore. It was peas season at the time of our visit (dry season).
See if you recognise any of these fruits and veggies..
We came across so many different varieties of bananas and plantains on the island and some I’ve only heard about and never seen until then. My favourite is the red/purple variety which is called Lakatan, this variety has to be cooked before being eaten. We’ve put together a gallery of the different types that we found on the island.
Some names of the varieties of bananas we came across: Lakatan, Secret Fig, Rock Fig, Red John, White John, Green Fig, Bluggoe, Green Banana and Plantain (there are so many more!)
We spotted so many Breadfruit trees all over the island. Breadfruit Oildown is Grenada’s national dish and now you know why, they are everywhere!
Damsel – Fruit also called amongst other names Trinidad raspberry
Golden Apple – These were found near to where we were staying in Grenada. They have a sweet and slightly citrus flavour – delicious.Coconut pulp – after drinking the coconut water I had it chopped open soI could eat the coconut jelly inside. What a treat!
Tumeric – this is readily available across Grenada and we use it in our Garlic & Pepper Sauce
Tamarind – very popular tree found allover. These pictured are very young. We use them in our Sweet Tamarind Sauce
We’ve put together a selection of sights and interesting images from our trips to the spice isle of Grenada. It’s a must for any Caribbean holiday, lot’s to see, do and eat on the Island.
Grenada is the largest of the 3 islands that encompass Grenada including Carriacou & Petit Martinique.
Enjoy our tour!
