Jamaica
noun
Ziziphus Mauritania; A small round berry about 3/4 inches in diameter. The fruit is green and turns yellow as it ripens. Ripe fruit may occasionally develop a rust brown colour and a cracked texture. The unripe fruit is firm and slightly acidic, and grows softer and mushier when it ripens. The berries have a single hard seed.

I was able to purchase a grafted Coolie Plum tree at Bahs Nursery in Griffin Road west of Flamingo Rd in South Florida. Planted it last year and today I noticed it has blossoms. Can’t wait to taste some. It’s been many many years
