Jocote (and tomatoes) in the market.

Jocote (and tomatoes) in the market.

Clearly I got off track on my in the market posts. That was partly because Ana was making most market trips. In any case, I finally realized I was trying to cover new and different things and one had been staring me in the face for the last few weeks.

That is jocote. (Don’t know what I am talking about? Try Wikipedia.) They have not just been in the market but street vendors have bags of them and at one place is selling frozen jocote. Are they selling? Clearly the answer is yes. You can tell by the number of jocote pits you see along the streets.

One place I lived in Nicaragua I had a couple of jocote trees in the back yard. One or two neighborhood kids could climb the tree and just stay there until they had eaten all the ripe fruit. Onc such kid was my sobrina.
