We people and the rest of the world appreciate the balance it gives to tart, spicy and salty foods. We people also appreciate its health benefits and its recognition as a source of "good cholesterol", also for its skin cleansing and moisturising abilities even when the fruit is old - just apply to the skin for the best facial! You either like it, hate it or are indifferent - your choice!
