This is Governor Cherry or Ceries or rolling cherry. Governor Plum is bigger in size, and has one big seed in the inside, similar to Jamaican plum except that when ripe the color is similar in shade to the cherry.

Dungs is a different fruit. Similar in size and shape to the cherry - Green on the outside and ripe to a yellowish brownish colour. Taste best when it is green to yellowish in colour. When it starts to turn brown, it is fermenting or as we Trinis say 'overripe' and when you eat it you tend to feel nauseous. great for chow.
