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.

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

Enjoy your Rincon Vacation!

    Hola, estoy buscando comprar platos y tazas de higüero. Mi padre tenía una gran colección (que usabamos en la cena) que se perdió durante mudanza a EU. Ustedes los venden?
