The locally famous Guanábana, a Puerto Vallarta secret.

Well, not so much of a secret for the Latin countries since it is grown all over tropical Latin America, but a secret to North America.  Lately topical fruits have been more present on everyone’s table and it is not just the exotic looks of the fruit or the exquisite flavors, they come with a great amount of health benefits that people nowadays can appreciate.

The Guanábana is a fruit with a very peculiar shape.  It grows on tropical weather and the skin is covered with some kind of bumps make it look as if it was the back part of some animal.  It is usually green and weights an average of a pound but it is not strange to find them bigger than that.

Inside you can find a meaty pulp that has seeds in the middle, this pulp is used to make deserts and the popular “agua fresca”.  The flavor is amazing and definitely tropical.

Health benefits:  High amounts of vitamin C, proteins, minerals, iron, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and more.

Some of the medicinal benefits attributed to the Guanábana are:  strong regulator of many body parts, it helps fighting hypertension, helps you when you catch a cold and it also helps by regulating the right levels of sugar in the body.  It is considered a natural protector of the body cells so it is recommended to prevent cancer.

They are weird-looking and not so easy to find in town, but is worth the effort.  It is delicious and healthy, that is the perfect combination.
