Eat (and drink!) delicious pejibaye at annual Costa Rica festival

September 26, 2014

Alcoholic chicha — made from pejibaye — at the Feria de Pejibayes in 2011. Pejibaye, or peach-palm in English, is a versatile fruit. Consume it topped with mayonnaise, pureed into a soup,  or fermented as an alcoholic beverage. In Tucurrique, known as the “Land of Pejibaye,” lovers of the palm fruit will host the annual Pejibaye Festival. Some 20,000 people are expected to come and enjoy the apricot-sized fruit at the fair that runs from Friday until Oct. 6 in the Cartago Province.
