Genipapo fruit

I found these genipapo fruits (Genipa americana) washed into a depression by the rains. Wherever there's a genipapo tree, the ground is covered with fruit. They are about the size of an orange and the juice is excellent, at least I think. It's not a very popular juice but some folks make liquors from genipapo. I've heard that it is more popular in the northeastern part of Brazil.

Regarding your web site:

I am helping my girlfriend make a small Jagua website and wanted to know if I could use some of your photos as I make pages.

As you probably know, the Jagua is derived from the genipa americana plant.

Looking forward to your reply!

Aloha from Maui, Hawaii!
