Just “delicious”. Now in season

Quenepas, Spanish limes, Genips

We finally harvested first batch of quenepas; they were soooo sweet and pulpy! What else can I say? I just love this time of the year…if it wasn’t because we are in hurricane season, I could almost guarantee weekly harvest. But, what if it is raining? nothing… nothing we can do. In order to take these tropical fruits off from the tree, someone will need to climb it. No can’t do. Too slippery and dangerous.

que200x217

Quenepa fruit has a tight and thin but rigid layer of skin, traditionally cracked by the teeth. Below that is the tart, tangy yellow pulp of the fruit. Each Quenepa fruit has a large seed inside of about the same size of the outer skin, the same ovoid shape as the fruit itself. Quenepa seeds can be roasted and eaten just like sunflower seeds. Oh yes! You can suck on Quenepas for hours! —

IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT HARVESTING & SHIPPING :

THE FINE PRINTS; PLEASE READ

Quenepa trees bloom in hurricane season, summer time in Puerto Rico. Shipping of your order may be delayed due to weather conditions on harvest day. We harvest on Sundays for Monday shipping and Mondays for Tuesday shipping. These trees are IMPOSSIBLE to climb while is raining, as they can be as tall as 80 feet and become super-slippery with the rain. We only ship these fruits on Mondays and Tuesdays (and up to Thursday via Express Mail) to prevent any possible spoilage while the post office is closed on weekends. Last year we did pretty good shipping Quenepas via Priority mail, this year we expect the same. But, Priority can take anywhere from 2-5 working days to deliver. If your package takes more than 3 days in transit, we will not be able to guarantee fresh fruit delivery. This seller will make sure to add some extra quenepas to Priority Mail shipping, to replace possible spoiled ones upon delivery of your package. Last year (2008), we had zero (0) spoilage casualties via Priority Mail.

HOW TO STORE QUENEPAS, SPANISH LIMES

Wrap in a moist cloth towel or brown paper and refrigerate in lower drawer where you keep your vegetables in your refrigerator.

SORRY, BUT WE DO NOT SHIP TO:

We can not ship to APO/FPO located outside USA or any International Countries, due to International Customs regulations.

SHIPPING NOTIFICATIONS

To expedite the handling of your order, we usually print all shipping labels on non-harvest days, so that shipping notification email you received, will NOT be the day we actually shipped your package. We highly recommend everyone to Track Your Package with the Delivery Confirmation Number you received by email, this way you can more or less know when to have someone over 18 years old waiting for your package at home.

Perishable products like this SHOULD NOT be left at the post office for later pick up or outside under the sun.
