Waiting for a bus back to Centro today, I saw a passionfruit vine along the top of a nearby hurricane fence. Tried one, and, though it was still green, the fruit was full of pulp and seeds and tasted good. Slightly acidic with a hint of sweetness. Though a greenish white inside, if I had closed my eyes I would have believed someone who said I was eating pomegranate.

There are so many amazing foods here in the desert, things one cannot buy in stores.
