I love Fat Pork. We have the white, pink and red varieties. I have been using them to make wine. They are used as hedges in several shopping centers and the pharmacies in Florida. The fruit is often black and the white flesh stands out. They are sweeter than ours.

I remember the shrub like trees growing on the river banks bearing small fruits of various colours. Namely, greenish, peachy, purplish but they all had an edible skin with white flesh; & once you'd eat off the skins & flesh, u bite it to reveal a dry edible nut inside. We used to hang out our washed clothes on the trees to dry while we bathe, and cook. Call it river wash day picnic ti
