In The Marshall Islands, Traditional Agriculture And Healthy Eating Are A Climate Change Strategy

LAURA VILLAGE, Marshall Islands -- Holding in his hand a bunch of what he called mountain apples, Steve Lepton grinned like a kid with a new toy.

“Oh, it’s good,” he said. “Yesterday I didn’t find any fruit on this one. Wow, this is great. They’re getting red.”

The delicate little fruit is crunchy like an apple and sweet. It’s a popular snack in the Marshall Islands, Lepton told The WorldPost, but kids pickle it with salt and Kool-Aid, which defeats the purpose of eating fruit in the first place.
