A day in the life: the cashema fruit

Last year I showed pix of some local Haitian fruits. I never offered a good picture of the Haitian "cashema" though. And since I really love the fruit -- and have never seen it anywhere else -- I wanted to include this picture for posterity:

I went back to your May post of the other fruits, Tim, and agree on the absence of vegetables encountered when I was there. I don't understand why people didn't grow vegetables in containers in that wonderful Carribean sun - I mean, I ate tomatoes there, so they must grow them somewhere, yet I never saw them growing in baskets in the balconies of Jeremie as they do in Italy. Or green onions. I mean wouldn't it be a great addition to the local diet?
I imagine greens would be harder, as it never gets cool - and greens and lettuce and brassicas like broccoli need cool. Eggplant should do well though, and even some cucumbers and okra.
