Around the Downtown LA and surrounding areas, you will see Latin American fruit carts loaded with watermelon, cantaloupe, mango, jicama, cucumber and other seasonal fruits. You get to customize your fruit selection and get only the fruits you want. What makes these fruit carts special is that you can top your fruit with chili powder and/or lime. We personally always get both because there is something really great about that sweet-meets-sour bite.
