I haven't tasted this fruit since 1964 when I lift Jamaica as a young boy. I have been back on numerous occasions but they are always out of season but this time I am going to make a special journey so that I can enjoy an Otaheite apple. Re-kindle our acquaintance, can't wait.

I'm new to T&T and I just bought some of this. I was hoping they're sweeter. Is this Pomerac or cashew? I thought they're 2 different fruit with the cashew being more yellow?
