I've lived all over South America, but Colombia is where I've seen the biggest variety of tropical fruits. Maybe it's thanks to the country's size, its great variety of climates, or just luck. But, from the sweet and refreshing pitaya, to the passionate maracuya, to the bizarre and juicy sapote, to the delicate mangostino, Colombia's fruits are a marvel.
While lots of fruits are available in supermarkets and corner shops, by far the funnest place to experience the great variety of tastes and colors is in one of the city's traditional fruit markets, such as Palo Quemao.
