Abstract

Colombia is one of the most biodiverse countries of the world and has the perfect climate and geographical conditions for a wide range of exotic tropical fruits, some of them only available in Colombia. The country is literally a paradise for those loving exotic tropical fruits and above all, they are not only delicious but inexpensive and plentiful. First explore a local farmer market and chat with the merchants about where certain fruits come from and how to eat them. Of course, focus on fruits of season and region – the closer the farm the better. Soon fill up your basket with plenty of mouth-watering delicious fruits and travel to the Botanical Garden of Medellín, located in the middle of the city. It is one of the few natural spots for local recreation within the city. The area with a size of 14 ha is home to more than 4,500 different species of plants. It offers a large collection of orchids, the national flower of Colombia. In other words – the perfect setting for a picnic. Your experienced “fruit” guide will prepare carefully a unique tasting of a decent selection of the fruits. While you enjoy the samples, you obtain further information about the fruits, its benefits, growing conditions and harvest and of course its cultural role within the Colombian people. Support directly local small-scale farmers of the Andean highlands around Medellín.
