Cheers!

It was more showing the different regions and what markets, fruits and collectors are around. I give a brief history on ANAI and give a shout out to Peter Kring.

It wasn't about native fruits at all. Lot's of rarities from collections and also some more commons stuff found at markets.

Durian, dabai, safou, emerald cacao, cupuasu, unidentified Pouteria, aguaje, chupa chupa, chempedak, abiu .......... a bunch of different stuff.

I was fortunate to meet both Josh and Ben at my project this year. Yes, we grow a lot of SE Asian fruits as the climate in our region of CR really favors them.
We do grow many native fruits as well. Some are well known like sapodilla and mamey. Others are barely known in Costa Rica like olosapo.
Thanks for the visits and reports.
