  Mike and the Jaca by RTL
by RafaelTheSecond

Actually this fruit came from India, the portuguese brought them from goa, and it addapted very well in our lands, nowadays everywhere in the city you can find JACA trees!;)

Good for candies, great as food. Jaca is quite popular among the locals!

My friend Mike from Canada...could see jaca closerly for the first time in his life!
