Here are some photos taken in the forest and on the hills. While walking uphill we met a man coming down from collecting fruits in the forest. It’s a Guanábana (Annona muricata). It grows wild and the fruits are collected for their private use. A fruit can wight up to 4 kilos and tastes sour – sweet. Interesting, unusual, but ok. You can eat the soft, whitely fruit or drink it as a juice. But avoid to eat the poisonous black pits.
I’d recommend to hire a local guide to get the interesting plants explained. There is so much to see and you’d miss it, when you don’t have a guide pointing your eyes on it. We had a very talented local guide. Actually he was able to guide this tour completely in excellent German. He even knew the German names of the plants and the animals.
Maybe you have a look on the past posts on Cuba here in my blog, or posts on any other topic.
I really wonder that the fruits are ripe. Apples are really red and sweet like sugar, even the summer was so wet and cold.
But it’s so beautiful to see the ripe fruits in the trees.
