Hog Plum or Ciruela (Jacote) - A Unique Blend of Sweet and Tangy

Belonging to the same family as mangoes and cashews, the Ciruela, also known as Jacote or Spondias purpurea, is a treasured fruit in Central America and the Caribbean. iHeartFruitBox prides itself on delivering the freshest, organically sourced Ciruela, bursting with a unique mix of sweet and tangy flavors.

With a vibrant red or yellow hue when ripe, Ciruela's thin skin reveals a juicy, delectably sweet, and slightly tangy flesh inside. Whether enjoyed fresh, in fruit salads, or as a flavorful addition to jams, jellies, and sauces, Ciruela is sure to delight your taste buds.

Rich in vitamins A and C to support a robust immune system, along with dietary fiber and antioxidants for overall health, Ciruela is not just a treat for the palate but a boon for your wellness. Discover its peak seasons in our SEASONAL GUIDE.

Ciruela Pro Tips

Our Ciruela fruits are handpicked slightly underripe to ensure they reach you in perfect condition, ripening during transit. For the ideal eating experience, look for a rich red or yellow color and a slightly soft feel. Whether you savor it slightly underripe or fully ripened, the edible skin adds to its unique flavor profile.
