Customer Tips & Reviews Cocona
I would appreciate more eating tips as i have two thriving plants but find the fruit too sour to enjoy as is.Very attractive and interesting plant though.
My wife is from Iquitos which is on the Amazon river in Peru. I lived there myself for around 7 years and Cocona is a very important part of the locals diet. They blend it up and add hot chile, Coriander and salt. Great salsa for fresh fish.
