Coco plums

Went hunting for coco plum and was chased by la susa and Tata Duende...

Tata Duende is a powerful spirit that protects the animals and jungles of Belize. According to legend, Tata Duende's presence can be felt upon entering the jungles of Belize. However, be extremely careful to not anger Tata Duende for his wrath can be deadly.

Tata Duende is as real as the air we breathe. It's the "spirit" of the jungle. Be good to it and it will be good to you. Stick your fingers where they don't belong and it will sting you!

There are two ecotypes of Cocoplum: the inland form, posited by some as Chrysobalanus icaco var. pellocarpus, always with dark purple drupes; as opposed to the coastal form C. icaco var. icaco which has yellowy-white drupes, sometimes with a rosy blush, as in the photo below.
