Amazon Tomato


Cocona is a tropical citrus fruit native to the Peruvian Amazon region. It's considered to be the "Amazon Tomato" often prepared with aji and mixed with salads. Coconas are in size and shape a little bit like a bell pepper and their colors vary from yellow to red with a taste between a lime and a tomato. Cocona is often used to make sauces accompanying anticuchos or fish soups. Great are also juices, jams and dessert made of this fruit.

Hello Yvette,
thanks for your compliments on LimaEasy. It's always great to get such positive feedback.
Regarding your suggestions for improvements on our fruit section: there we concentrated mainly on fruits native to Peru, not on fruits that can be bought here today. Therefor the ciruela / plum (depending on the exact species native to Europe and Asia), the maracuya (native to Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay) and the plantains / bananas (probably first domesticated in southeast Asia, Papa New Guinea, later in Africa) aren't mentioned.
