Seagrapes in Season

Debbie wait! Those are still green.

Those delicious seagrapes that come in season only once a year are plentiful at the moment. The season for the exotic tropical fruit is on and everybody is picking all that they can. Once bountiful on the island, seagrape trees are now very scarce and can be found mostly in the outskirts of town and up north. Even the quantity of grapes that the tree produces every year has gone down a bit. Plus, the time of year the seagrape trees bloom has been later during the year. Before the trees used to bloom in late May, early June. But they are still great fruity treats that we enjoy year after year.
