Fitz yeah Fitz so how long have you been here Fitz how long have you been on this uh corner at this particular Corner um not I started on the other Corner over there High Street at 1975 1975 yep wow and this is your what you do always

Fruit um this is a part of what I do okay I did something else I I did CR all the cruise ships I used to supply all the cruise ships oh nice and it was a disappointed day for me when the cruise ship ordered some Commodities and then I

The son took part of it and after the sun took part of it I decided to go and do the other part of it and the ship only took a couple and then I went on the road in 1975 that was High Street Corner and then after I decided after

The cruise ship went belly um business up because of the explosion and that was in 75 75 yeah oh so 911 when 911 came I had to change from 91 wow so you’ve been almost 50 years selling fruit out here in the streets of St John St John longer

Than I’ve been alive 10 years before I was born you out here well that’s good that’s good that tells you look great like you look great that tells you something it tells you that stick to oh he added some raisins there and this food is called Mommy

Support this is it mommy support yeah can I try some yeah you’ll get some I’ll get you perfect so what’s one thing you youve been to the other Islands I think what’s one thing that makes Antiga different from maybe the other Islands our the people here is number

One and the soil we have volcanic soil and so it’s like antig M has about the same ante M gu Loop so you find the pineapples here going to be sweeter than the other places almost all the produce that we produc here as dry nice and palatable so you’ll find this here in

Antiga and you probably would find it one or two other place in the region but in terms of pineapple we have about the best pineapple you have in the world we speak a straight languages the others bend the languages to a point oh other langu what’s can you give us a little

Example of like some no well instead I said come here go on Partner come here now go down the road you like that mean let us go down the road and say come here but I said in my dialect and in Jamaica they have their own dialect all

The islands have the dialect so we we we craft in our in our languages in our dialect and we get along a lot with people we very spiritually oriented people and so you find that we do things a little more under under the safer side we are more moral minded we are more

Concerned about people we more people friendly we more human people and things of that nature so this is one of the things that make Antiga um a different place and we have a fantastic array of beaches 365 beaches we have nice Rocky sides we have nice um lookover from

Different point we have some fabulous hotels in this country we just you call it we name it we antig man I’m excited to have some of this pineapple tell you truth this thing has me salivating wow papaya look at this oh that’s the black pineapple a black pineapple

Wow so it’s not really black but the inside’s black no it’s not black the nature of the nature it’s a very cute pineapple yeah it’s a very baby pine it’s a little baby yeah it’s a little baby it’s amazing yeah this is this is um see when you you you planted

Pineapple when you going to um put that put on the the the spray on them what you call the for people the insects and things like that what you’ll have you cover everything are you going to be there pineapp biggest these but these are not really our pineapple but them

Just a demonstration of the size we normally have and this so this is the baby one so this is this is a two pict of it most times our pineapple go better in um August September June July August September that’s when we have the sweet sweet sweet pineapple after you finish

Eating this pineapple you need water cuz it’s so sweet is that sweet that’s sweet sweetest in the Caribbean sweet in the world not the Caribbean people from Germany come here all the time and and they ask me if I have any Antiga Pine but there are certain times of the year

That the Antiga Pine is not as sweet as it would be because it’s we’re trying to make sure that we have things to suit the people rather don’t Fe them coming from all the way different parts of the world and asking through the commodity

And not being able to to to have a taste of it so you find when we sort of induce it to get what we want we don’t get to sweet things but when it’s natur when it comes naturally in June July August September then you have the sweetest

Finapp anywhere over the world so just like any other thing some people have it all the year around we can get it all year but we got it cut enough so I’m going to give you guys a bit of it and this is compliment oh thank you this is the sweetest pineapple on

Earth they say it’s the best the Antiga black pineapple there so sweet burst of water oh I’ll eat this all day it’s ridiculous look how small it is you have another one there it’s tiny I’ve never seen a pineapple this small and this is the the final product

Like that well this this one is a size product not size because as I said they treat them all on one covering so when they’re going to Boom spray them everything gets the same treatment but you always get like this right cuz this one this is like the regular pineapple

Look at the difference size it’s crazy this is my head and this is the baby put like this dude it’s amazing you can go anywhere over the world and try the pineapple and come to Antiga and try the Antiga black especially June July and August when the real season this time is

Off season so you find you find that they’ll come a little smaller and when they’re doing the overhead spray with call the boom Square they Square everything together so some will come big like the guy we showing you earlier but these are the very tiny tiny ones

But they’re also sweet to me these are sweeter than the big big ones because they have less size but these and when the Sun get it and it has a dry T it’s not a watery pineapple so if you put this in a in a food tray then you don’t

Have to wonder if you’re going to run on the other fruit so you can have this in the same fruit you could be allergic to to Pineapple but in your setting or in whatever fruit you make it you can take all the pineapple the stin is different

It’s sweeter it’s firmer and it’s not watery at all it’s just firm and so I’m cutting it in four different pieces here cutting off the head and this is the head you plant this head and it takes 18 months before it to grow into a PL again 18 months wow this one I

Eat put some salt salt some pepper maybe some spices make it a nice Chow in Trinidad they do that I know that they mix it so good I went to barbes in Trinidad one time Guana and we did exchange of of of we made all sorts of little cups

Mangoes um pineapple so mix the fruits you know some christophine put all together so some sauce and some pepper in it add some pepper sauce in it and black pepper White yeah exactly Guana Trinidad Barbados got my beans my ganes my trinis I travel to all these new territories and most

Soup the only soup place in antig Barb it’s the only soup place in antig Barb yeah that was amazing soup soja boy my man byebye all right guys we’re here at a cricket match we’re going to get some footage it’s awesome I’ve never seen it

Me either so right here at the stadium I guess this field we have this gentleman his name is Timmy Time cocktails he makes some of the best cocktails here on the island right there so let me tell you how much I know about Cricket nothing I just know that

They play this in India and all the commonwealth countries they play this game there’s a guy in the middle he serves it almost like a pitcher and then it bounces and you’re supposed to hit it like a bat right like Baseball hit it and goes out and then he has to go

Around bases I’m guessing that’s how they play I’ve never seen it in action only on TV but this is right here practicing 2018 October so that makes this year one number how many years old are we today okay so David this game is called Cricket it’s a British sport that was

Handed down to us so our actual international team is called West Indies a compilation of players from different Islands Barbados Trinidad gyana Jamaica and tigga St Lucia and so that’s is called the Western the so in this game of cricket what you looking at the gentleman with the hat he’s called a a

Wicket keeper so he stands behind the Wicket and we have like the stumps are here the stumps across there and the guy on the end here he’s a boulder so he’s Bolding to the batter all right and the guy behind there with the gloves he’s the Wicket

Keeper so he’s going to catch the ball now the concept of the game is if you hit the ball you can run between the crease but you better get to the other end because if not you can be stomped out if you hit the ball and the ball

Goes beyond the boundary which is this line right around here then what happens is you get six runs if you hit it within the boundary you get four runs that’s the concept of the game though so it could be very lenty you could have what’s called a test match that goes

About 5 days starting from about 9 to about five oh these guys are probably paying about what they call like 20 overs every six ball uh that equates to one over so before when we were watching it so this is like the third ball and

This guy’s a spinner so what he does he spins the ball and he doesn’t run off as fast as the other guy did he would be a fast baller but he’s a spinner so what he does he will spin the ball in his hands and you can go you have to go

Overhand not like baseball when you just throw it it has to go overhand all right so that’s the whole concept of the game so he hit the ball the guys ran between there so that’s actually one runs wow okay so it’s not like softball it’s under baseball is

Straight right this is over over it’s like over it over and it has to drop within we can’t see it here because it’s marked out so when the guys bowling he can’t go beyond that because that’s going to call a no barall and he has to stay within that square boundage right

There last five days yeah you can have a match which is called a test match that last five days five days it’s almost like one of those tennis matches that last like 18 hours or something but they’ve got they’ve got I mean they do have test matches but they realize that

The game can be too lengthy so they now have what they call 50 overs every six ball is one over they’ve compressed it again to like 20 overs all right so I’m sure this is what these guys are playing right what language is he speaking I

Have no idea what he’s saying oh my go I’m lost oh my gosh oh my gosh I’m an American bro I understand but I’m trying we don’t we don’t believe in rugy and we don’t believe in cricket oh my gosh I’m messing with you guys come Ono I love

You guys and there’s four there’s four like uh national heroes of cricket from here from Antigo they play for the West Indies they used to play for the West Indies used to play for the west and right now anybody playing uh we have about what maybe about three guys playing Jimbo yeah yeah

Joseph we got about two three guys playing right now nice so you guys produce strong cricket players uh yeah I would say that the emphasis on the game has gone down a bit hopefully these guys here these uh young guys they be able to bring exactly cuz it’s a it’s a

Tradition that was handed On To Us by the British not just here in Antiga but most of the cvan we play crickets right we got some roasted corn right here she’s there’s a roadside corn vendor no you’re good you’re good how you doing it’s amazing with that just blowing

It woo it’s hot do you put any butter on it or do do you just eat it like this just like this just like that no but oh wow I’m going to try one but you you’re really roasting them look this like popping right here so what’s your name my name is Jennifer

Jennifer nice to meet you how long have you been doing this uh about 10 years 10 years yes my husband is a farmer and I roast the car wow so your husband’s a farmer and you roast the corn and do you do this all day long like what time do you start the

Corn cuz we know that most Street vendors here in Antiga don’t really do stuff during the week it’s usually on the weekends for us when the crop is ready so the crop is ready it’s usually 3 days for the week or some time five it depends on the amount of

Corn we have got it got it so just like this with no butter no butter just you throw any salt you add anything nothing fre from the farm and they’re very nice we try one they’re very thin corn this nice and charred like straight from the farm so this Farm to

Table right here right here on the side of the road a lot of traffic going up and down the street I’m excited I’m hungry about to break my fast with some Antiga corn Roose corn but but where’s the black pineapple pineapple we got to get it it’s the black pineapple right all

Right I’ll try one how much is it for one we sell according to size okay yeah so I mean one of these longer ones like this this one is like $3 $3 so it’s like one almost one USD a little more than one USD for that oh it smells amazing it’s like popping

Everywhere you eat this every day when it’s available when it’s I know I’m joking yeah but what’s most interesting though is the charcoal mhm yeah this is actually charcoal that we actually make oh you make is charcoal the TRU out so what happened is you get like tree

Trunks M and they will like dig a hole in the ground this quick scenario could probably be like 6 ft long maybe about 4 ft deep maybe about 4 ft wide they’ stack those wooders in there and then they’ll light them a fire and then they’ll put two pipes in there for

Combustion for oxygen so they can burn they’ll cover it with dirt about a week after they remove the dirt then V you get charcoal oh wow yeah so it’s right in the bu it’s an amazing explanation yeah yeah that’s what I got a Char use

It in the hotels barbecue we use it like when we go to the beach with barbecues and for instance like this like for instance if you at home and you want to fight fish you one that part up in your kitchen you get like a this pot right

Here it’s made out of metal but sometimes they can make them out of clay you put your charcoal in and that’s it so they got s yeah what other juices they got in there Rasberry that’s it right let me see the s s sell look at that made my hand red is

That crazy or what it’s frozen though it’s frozen that’s right open this up I biscuits flour first time I tried this I was in um I was in Guyana yeah it’s normally very it’s sweet nice and sweet get a lot in Christmas doesn’t Yeah Christmas Yeah Christmas yeah yeah

Sirm and Guyana they love stuff like this in Christmas oh it’s so tasty they they got any peanut drink over there n they didn’t have any peanut drink they all they had was Um passion fruit yeah so passion fruit and the rest of them are from supermarkets and stuff

Yeah ice cold yeah the reason when you get ice like this is that you drink it along the road you know slowly it heats up the day it’s great but I need this right now so I’ll take one corn by the way it looks like business is

Booming for you because we’ve been here 5 minutes and it’s like you have client after client after client I you guys love Rose corn they love the rose corn they love Rose corn most of the days we have more customers than corn some days you have more customers than corn don’t

Let every Ana know that they’ll come and Rob us oh my gosh it’s amazing yeah we usually have more corn we have more cor than more customers than corn so she says she’s going to you’re going to add this into here this is the the this is

The house or the some people say the shell the shell corn and some customers prefer it like this okay and they eat it from the render paper just like that no added salt nothing you know this reminds me of going back to India when I had corn in India very tasty nice and

Charred just like that sweet no added no not sweet I mean there is some flavor but that comes from the smoke in L of America they do overload they had Mayo they had salces yeah right yeah they had queso they have cheese Cayenne I think right too Cayenne or is it cayenne pepper

Throw some hot sauce on here oh my goodness you say that’s a sin oh it’s a smokey bite come bring the bag me come here come what time you usually here 9:30 a.m. and we’re here until about 2:00 about 2: afternoon B here until you sell out basically and that’s the time we

Sell out no matter what we bring about how is business business is great it’s great yes do you have a lot of the tourists coming through from the cruise ships do they stop here like in big groups or no not a lot sometimes they they will stop
