The regional fruits & vegetables of Mexico are the foundation of the traditional cuisine …
Many are indigenous… virtually unchanged since the earliest days of agriculture, well before the arrival of the Spanish. Prehispanic ingredients are still commonly eaten all around Mexico.
Some are farmed, others are gleaned… locals protect and preserve these valuable heritage foods.
Some are exotic– many foods native to India and Southeast Asia are now grown in Mexico because of its great diversity of growing conditions.
