It has a very high smell but I wouldn't say that it is stink. But that's the name I know it as too, Stinking Toe. I don't llike the powdery kind of sticky feel to it my mouth. Not my favourite fruit.

It makes for stinky flatulence! As a young boy, we used to eat lots of it for school the next day!

In Jamaica the fruit called "stinking toe" sometimes Locust John the Baptist ate in the wilderness is about 6"x 3" in a very hard brown shell which we would break with a hammer or a rock.Inside were fairly large seeds surrounded by a yellow powdery smelly dust.Kind of sticky in the mouth.Picture shown above is not the jamaican fruit.
