Fun Fact: Ciruela, also known as Jacote or Spondias purpurea, is a tropical fruit that belongs to the same family as mangoes and cashews, providing a unique mix of sweet and tangy flavors!
Ciruela is native to Central America and the Caribbean, where it is cherished for its small, plum-like appearance and delectable taste. At iHeartFruitBox, we are committed to offering our customers the freshest and most flavorful Ciruela, sourced from organic farms that focus on quality and sustainability.
These delightful fruits are typically red or yellow when ripe, with a thin skin that encases a juicy, sweet, and slightly tangy flesh. Ciruela can be enjoyed fresh, added to fruit salads, or used as a flavorful ingredient in jams, jellies, and sauces.

Ciruela (Jacote) Pro Tips
Ciruela fruits are picked slightly underripe and will ripen during transit. To know when they're ready to eat, the fruit will display a rich red or yellow color and be slightly soft to the touch. Some people enjoy Ciruela slightly underripe, while others prefer them fully ripened for maximum sweetness and tanginess. The skin of the Ciruela is edible, and it's up to personal preference whether you choose to consume it or not.
