Why the funky name?
“In 2003, I was traversing the dense Costa Rican jungle with local friends when we ran out of food, a day short of our next re-supply. I walked passed the giant spikey Guanabana fruit not knowing it was edible. Luckily, my friends knew better. They sliced it open with a machete and we ate to our hearts content. The Guanabana saved us and became our lucky charm. The richness of its taste and the experience lingered in my mind. Years later, when I sat pondering the values of our company and its name, it all came rushing back to me. The Guanabana and my experience embody everything we stand for; we’re daring, different and green. Besides, WILD GUANABANA is super fun to say. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and try!”
