I know it as sour cherries and Series or Cerise. Has a sour tart taste but makes good chow and preserves.

Damsel in my little island. Found a jar of pickled ones from Thailand (pickled Gooseberry) in Chinese market in NY. A little bland! Loved them fresh off the tree as a child! Sour!

The fruit is whitish green changing in color to yellow when fully mature. Mature fruits are usually sour and tart due to its high acidity. The fruit is usually consumed with salt but can be eaten fresh.
