Our Church Building in Yallahs is an older house - small house but huge yard. In the yard are several mango trees, other fruits that I don't know - a June Plum I think and a cashew tree. Here are two cashew apples - the nut is on the end - you can eat the apple about 24 hours after picking it ... after that it ferments easily...the nuts are shelled and then roasted - see why cashews are so expensive - lots of hard labor to harvest them. The mangoes are numerous - but people say there were many more last year. The Agave (sp) plant is huge - Yallahs is drier than the other places we have lived on the island. Elder Smith says it is in a 'rain shadow' being close to the Blue Mountains.
