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. | Craig Caldwell - , 05-Dec-2009


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. | Gerry Schouten - Valdora, QLD 07-Mar-2014
