Balata fruit a first for me

By Marika Mohammed. It’s the first time I’ve heard of such a thing, balata. It has a nice ring to it though. Balata, like a song. But what is it really? Continuously awed of the things grown right here in Trinidad, balata is another little rare gem.

The rare balata

First off, it’s a fruit. It’s rare to see nowadays and the only way I got my hands on it was by going to the bush and talking to the old folk who lived there. They continuously told me that it’s something young people know nothing about, myself included.

Balata is brown on the outside and looks like a little cherry. It’s colour doesn’t mean it’s rotten, it means it’s ready to eat. The inside is white, soft and juicy. In the middle, sits a jet black pit. This is not edible.

The taste itself is strange to me and the only thing I could compare it to would be a plum. It goes to show we need to explore more of what Trinidad has to offer and all its locality.
