Yucatan Food: Cayumito

One thing I love about living in the Yucatan Peninsula is its amazing fruit. Recently, my suegra gave me one that I’d never even seen before: cayumito.

My suegra had gotten the cayumito from a friend who had recently traveled to the nearby state of Campeche. She told me the best way to eat it is to cut it in half, then use a small spoon to scoop out the insides.

The texture of the cayumito was like a grape, but the flavor was sweeter. I’m a huge fan of fruits, and this one did not disappoint!

What’s the weirdest fruit you’ve ever eaten?
