It may seem strange to talk about summer when the Caribbean enjoys summer-like weather all-year round. However, we do feel the difference in the atmosphere as it is hotter at this time of the year, and fruits, especially favourites like mangoes, pineapples, and a variety of melons are plentiful.
Friends with fruit trees share their bounty, so too do neighbours. Buying fruits at this time of the year is a bargain. I bought cantaloupe for as little as BDS $1-dollar per pound. This is the perfect time of the year to cook, eat and drink fruits. Don't forget to puree some of it and freeze so that you can make your favourite desserts and drinks until the season comes around again.
