This is what the Islanders call a “Craboo Tree”. It grows in our front yard and just behind the clinic main building. It is so big and gives off so much shade in the summer that we have a seat built under it for back yard conversations. But the tree is in full bloom, full of green, yellow, orange, red, and all the shades in between.
The Carboo Tree has a fruit that is about the size of a large cherry, it is on a stem that is similar. The fruit is round dark yellow and orange in color, is a little bitter to the taste, but is often mixed with sugar for a great treat. Right now, I am just enjoying the color that is happening right out my window. Every morning, as I eat breakfast, I can look out and enjoy God’s wonderful color.
