And, trust me, every single tree is being monitored by a local person. It isn't "wild" fruit, waiting for you to pluck it. Someone is patiently waiting for that fruit to ripen. And that person, or someone in that family, has been watching that tree for years.
There are mango and citrus orchards all over the hills around Chacala. You can see them from the beach if you look up to the hills. Lines of trees in small patches, maybe a acre or two.
There are also Noni trees (or bushes really). Their fruit is new to me, and i don't care for it. But it is considered to be very healthful, and life -giving around here. Everyone has planted a bush or two area their home in the last year or two, And most of them are beaing fruit now. The two plants at this house are both bearing fruit right now. I don't know how long they take to get ripe.
