Ecuador Food Series, Part 6: The Babaco

the Babaco in the Ecuador Amazon region

The Babaco is a fruit I have never seen anywhere but in Ecuador! Not even in nearby countries like Peru and Colombia.

It looks like a rugby ball, and is completely yellow when ready to be eaten. The Babaco is native to the Amazon Jungle region of Ecuador and is sold street side in that area. It is a very tasty fruit, but has a flavor very different to anything you have tried before, a little tart, a little sweet… and You don’t eat the skin.

Must try!
