pomerac
Wicked fruit that I haven't had in years!! So tasty!! Mmmm, yummy!
I was actually craving this , and had to google it
To show my husband because he had no clue as to
What this fruit was. So sweet and juicy
Would really work Nicly mixed with a garden salad
Yummy in my tummy
Guyanese folks call it "cashew"
My favourite fruit!!
they are called pomerac in T&T
Spelled "Pomme Au Rac" in TT and elsewhere. Trees can grow to over 50 feet.
Colin, it may resemble a cashew, but there is no nut at the base of the fruit. So it is not a cashew. We have those in Trinidad as well, and they are called cashew. These are pommeracs or pomme au racs. And they probalbly grow in Guyana as well. Tall trees, large pink wisyp flowers. Thin red skin, white tender flesh. Large seed inside.
