For being such a tiny country Guatemala, it tops some lists, not all bad either. For instance, Guatemala is a top producer of premium coffee. Also, Guatemala is the top producer of poinsettias, pascuas as we call them here. Furthermore, this tiny country is also a top producer of sugar. Believe it or not, Guatemala also dictates the price of cardamom as it is the top producer of this rare, aromatic and exquisite seed of a plant of the ginger family.
Here I share with you a picture of a poinsettias delivery truck. As I have mentioned before, pascuas are quite popular as decoration plants around Christmas and they make the perfect present for the season.
