Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

Fresh Fruit from the Tree

It is mango season here in Jamaica, and once again there is an abundance of the fresh, fleshy, fruit to eat.

Also, guineps are also just coming out, as are tamarind and otaheite apples.

While we don't have fall, summer, sinter and summer, we do mark the seasons here in Jamaica by the fruits that we can pick at that time of year.

In the U.S. recently, I ate some pineapple, papaya and bananas and the awful tastes were a sure sign that they were way out of season.

I love the fact that our fruits here in Jamaica were actually picked when they were just about ripe, and that they taste that way!
