A Cocoplum

On New Providence at this time of year, Bahamians can often be seen along the roadsides where cocoplum trees are growing. The trees flourish in low lying areas where rain water settles. There are many along the airport road.

Erskine loved picking the little cocoplums on Long Island, while he was growing up. In those days the children didn’t have many manufactured sweets, which was probably a good thing! The Long Island families lived off the land and the sea – a very healthy life.
