30 Bananas a Day!

I know I've posted about this before, but this time I specifically would like to know how available fruit will be in Peru? I will be studying there from January 31st to April 27th. Will I be able to forage? Will I be relying on markets? If so, how expensive is the fruit there? 

I will be living with a host family and then traveling with my professor and other students, so no one else will be focusing on finding fruit to eat (I will have to be prepared myself) and we may not have ample time for fruit hunting. Also the host family will likely expect me to eat what is provided so I will have to explain to them. I'm guessing they wont be serving much fruit.I know raw fish is one of their main dishes. boo.

I just want to be prepared! so if anyone has any insider info/tips/advice please let me know!

We will be primarily in Arequipa and Cuzco, with a few days in Lima, an overnight in the Amazon jungle, and a few other field trips elsewhere.

I know this is an old thread, but I just think Peru has the most amazing fruit ever! My favorite fruit- granadilla is readily available (can't find it anywhere in the US).

Cherimoya is my second favorite and they have a large version of it too (can't remember what it is called) that is delicious. I have tried the Cherimoyas they sell in US grocery stores and they are nowhere near as good as the ones in Peru!


And starfruit!!!! So fresh. And again, the starfruit I have had in the US is nowhere near as good.

The fruit is SOOOO much better than the fruit available in the US  and soo much fresher. and SOOO CHEAP.

I have not been to Peru since childhood, in fact, I was a processed food junkie while visiting, but the fruit is so amazing and fresh and cheap that even a processed food junkie will be enamored by it!

Too bad about the crime though.

What about the crime... I was wanting to spend a year or more in Peru but do you think I'd be safe? I was wanting to be on the beach, surf beaches. I speak brocken Spanish, but i guess id improve while I'm there. So what do you think I have to watch out for? Petty theft or more serious assaults?

Cheers.
