Indians in Jamaica curry it. Eat it with salt and pepper we call it karamanga. So delicious 😋

I'm from St. Mary and there, non-Indians call/called it Coolie Jimbelin to differentiate it from another fruit, Jimbelin which was round and flat. As children we used to eat it BUT it is sour. My mom was Indian and she used to pickle it with hot chillis and curry, like a mango chutney. DELICIOUS with dahl!
