Copazu Cultivation

During our stay in La Libertad it was noted that the copazu fruit is being grown in the chagras surrounding the village. Reportedly (according to Enrique) this fruit is in short supply in Leticia and so is likely to fetch a good price. As such there is an opportunity to increase the production of these fruit in order to sell them in Leticia. The copazu trees reported grow and mature to produce fruit in just 2 years.

Suggested next steps – speak with people in Leticia (market stall owners, restaurant owners etc) to assess the demand for the copazu fruit and discuss with Gustavo and the villagers the appetite for growing more of this fruit, and the feasibility of selling it in Leticia.
