Fruit for Breakfast

Absolutely delicious! I'm talking about a Philippine tropical fruit called caimito or starapple in English, which just so happened to be my breakfast this morning. Plucked from the tree in my organic garden. Summer is definately coming very soon. Although with the rise in temperature this past week I would say its already here. I love summer! The colors, the unexpected breeze - during a heatwave is really quite thrilling, the spectacular sunsets, the clear blue seas and skies...

Excuse me, I'm babbling. Where was I? Oh, yes. My delicious breakfast of caimito. This really brings back some memories. I grew up on Caimito Road which actually did have several caimito trees. During the season the gardener would pick baskets full of fruit. The ones on my street were purple and smaller than the ones growing on my garden. As you can see in the pictures I took, these fruits are green and larger. Both delectible.
