Here we have an attractive and mouth-watering booklet about fruits in the Pacific. After the Leaves we eat and the Staples we eat, this manual describes well-known tropical fruits banana, pineapple, citrus, coconut and mango and local favourites such as kavika, nandau and wi. The fruits we eat discusses the value of fruits, and their taste, smell, texture and nutritional qualities. Some 27 fruits are described, illustrated together with their respective uses and common preparations. Another chapter compares their composition and nutritional value, before a concluding glimpse at the future and potential of fruits in the Pacific are briefly set out. Compiled by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community, this is a useful booklet for people working in the field of food and nutrition, health, agriculture and extension or education.
