Guinep


A back home favorite of mines. Guinep is a fun fruit to eat. It’s great for eating out-of-hand and it’s also used to make juice, jam, and jelly. Just crack the thin skin with your teeth and pop the juicy seed in your mouth.

The Jamaican guinep has several great benefits, with only 58 calories in a healthy serving, the guinep contains protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, ash, calcium, thiamine phosphorus, iron, carotene, riboflavin, ascorbic and amino acids.

Tip: Be careful of the guinep juice because it will stain your clothes. I personally can vouch to that.
