RED GUAVA

In Mexico, the guava agua fresca beverage is popular. The entire fruit is a key ingredient in punch, and the juice is often used in culinary sauces (hot or cold), as well as artisan candies, dried snacks, fruit bars, desserts, or dipped in chamoy. In many countries, guava is eaten raw, typically cut into quarters or eaten like an apple, whereas in other countries it is eaten with a pinch of salt and pepper, cayenne powder or a mix of spices (masala).

OUR

ONLINE SHOP

 

As meat consumption reduces and the availability of plant-based foods rises at a staggering rate, the diet choices made by the public is rapidly changing (recent statistics show that the amount of vegetarians and vegans in the UK is at an all-time high) .

 

Our diverse population is creating a new demand for healthy and alternative produce. To illustrate this, as a regular customer recently said:

 

'Friends of mine that eat meat may purchase a sirloin steak or some tiger prawns as a luxury for dinner at the weekend. As a vegan, I like to treat myself to some hand selected and tree ripened organic mangoes and occasionally, a whole jackfruit!'

Purchasing is simple. The exotic fruits are available individually, in small multipacks, selection boxes or gift baskets.

We work closely with our suppliers, building an extensive knowledge of these rare and hard-to-obtain fruits. We are always looking to discover new and exciting fruits and are regularly updating our range, working hard to source organically.

We have a wide range of customers buying our fruits for many reasons, the health benefits and culinary uses being the main motivation.

 

HEALTH BENEFITS

Increasingly, people are now becoming more aware of their health and the relationship between what you eat and how you feel. Undeniably, fruit is a vital part of any healthy, balanced diet. However, lack of variety can sometimes be a barrier to people looking to incorporate more fruits into their diet.

 

The concentration of vitamins in some of the exotic fruits we sell, far exceed what is found in supermarket-bought fruits here in the UK. Better still, there are new vitamins and minerals found in our fruits which are hard to obtain from the fruits sold in the UK.

 

In our Online Shop, you will find pure, frozen organic pulps of Amazonian rainforest fruits including Pitanga, Acerola, Cacao, Cupuacu and Graviola. These fruits are revered for their high concentration of vitamins and healing abilities.

 

You can learn more about the amazing nutritional qualities and health benefits of the fruits on our Health page.

 

CULINARY USE

While most of our fruits are suitable to be eaten neat out of your hand, the flavour and enjoyment of some can be improved if they are prepared in a certain way or mixed with other complementary flavours.

 

Some of our dried fruits can simply be steeped in hot water to create delicious medicinal teas or mixed into the dough of baking creations. The frozen pulps of our fruits are perfect to be mixed with milk or water.

 

Our delicious fruits are used by some of the world’s top chefs to create gourmet recipes. On our Kitchen page we have provided you with some guidance on how you can use the exotic fruits at home.
