Ambarella. An edible fruit growing on large trees up to 30m. The fruits have thick, sometimes leathery skin and dendritic (fibrous or hairy) seeds. While unripe, the flesh is crisp and firm with a tart acidic taste. As it ripens, it turns yellow, becomes soft and develops a sweet taste and fragrant smell. Both ripe and unripe fruits can be eaten raw. It is also often prepared by juicing, stewing with ginger and sugar, pickling with peppers and spices, or made into chow.

This fruit was introduced to the Caribbean around the late 1700's-1800's. So all the different countries of the West Indies have their own name for it. There is a lot of french influence in Trinidad, "pomme" is the french word for apple Spondias dulcis (syn. Spondias cytherea) is the scientific name for it, so that's where we TRINIS get "cythere" from so we call it POMMECYTHERE!!!
The fruit was also called Amra,by the Indians probably because of the South Indian Tamils who came to Trinidad as indentured labourers
A still can't get the meaning as yet
