One of the benefits of living in the villages of La Antigua Guatemala is that many of the neighbors sell their excess of freshly-picked fruits and veggies from their back yard orchard. As shown in the picture, avocados are very inexpensive, just Q1 to Q1.50 ($0.12 to $0.18); with these prices it’s no wonder that antiüeños are known as pansas verdes (green bellies).
What other fruits and vegetables do think people grown in their home orchards?
