Quenepas are everywhere in Puerto Rico, but at home in NJ they were rare. So I tucked a bag of them among sandy shorts and t-shirts just before flying back. They didn't scan things quite as carefully then, and the seeded branch made it through two airports undisturbed.
Quenepas are another tropical fruit of Puerto Rico. While you’ve probably tried coconut, quenepas are harder to find outside the Caribbean. They are small, round green fruits with a rigid skin that cracks almost like an egg, revealing the juicy pale tangerine colored flesh that contains a large, wood-like pit.
AUGUST! The best quenepas are harvested in August. The July harvest is for export and tourism. The August harvest is for the local summer festivals.
