You may have noticed on property the soft glow of lights nestled in our almond tree. These handmade creations are made out of calabash which is the fruit that is native to the Caribbean, South, Central and North America. While not grown on property at Jamaica Inn, you can find this round fruit all over the island.
The fruit of the calabash is claimed to have medicinal properties, however, it is mostly used for the shell. It is very popular among artists and artisans, who have been turning it into cups, plates, bowls, and cutlery.
At Jamaica Inn, we craft this fruit into beautiful natural lighting to create a romantic Caribbean ambiance for beach dining.
