My years on the Hacienda El Tesoro were simply filled with fruit, with a forest of every conceivable type of fruit tree including 70 mature Mango trees growing beside the main house!
In season, the air was filled with the thud of falling fruit followed by the shriek of Mango! Below the ground, ginger and Turmeric grew in the shade of the cacao trees brought over from the east in distant colonial days.
The coconut trees swayed in the breeze across the beaches. I whiled away the hot, tropical evenings making mango nutmeg jam.
A truly magical place, the Garden of Eden, where the forbidden fruit meets Theobroma, cacao is the food of the gods! Not even Adam and Eve could resist that!
