Gourd Art of the Higuera Tree


This gourd-like fruit was used by the Taino Indians and then by Puerto Rican farmers to make pots, containers, buckets and cups.


Today the Higuera Tree fruit is also used to make musical instrument and art.  The fruit is dried and hollowed before it is worked with.


Some say, the fruit can be used for medicinal purposes, including labor pains. Take the inside and boil it into a tea.  But you'll want to find a local Puerto Rican that knows more about doing so!


You will likely find Higuera Art of Puerto Rico at the Rincon Art Walk.


Enjoy your Rincon Vacation!
