There are 2 coconuts in your share this week. With all the rain we've been getting, it's not unusual to get 10 or 12 ounces of coconut water per fruit!These bananas are a variety that is best cooked – once ripe, try them fried, mashed, or baked for a sweet or savory treat. One of our CSA members mentioned that they are great dried for banana chips.
The mangoes this week are a mix of Julie, kidney, and Asian varieties
The sour oranges are packed with Vitamin C and other nutrients – try making an orangeade drink with a little bit of sweetener (honey, sugar, stevia or agave), or use it in place of lemon or lime in any dish.
The breadfruit is ready to eat now, or you can let it ripen and soften for a different texture and a sweeter flavor.
Have a fruitful week!
