i think you are confusing starapple with jamoon. jamoon is the size of an olive not a tennis ball.

This is known a Governor plum in Grenada, it's about the size of an olive and must be soften. Before eating the pulp

This is most definitely not governor plum, neither is it star apple. In my country it is called Jamoon. Very delicious and also a bit sour. It is the size of an olive and grows on the trunk of the tree like the cannon ball fruit (Couroupita guianensis)

It's Jamoon fren it's olive shaped not no tennis roll. You can use it to make juice or jam 😋😋. Beware it "STAINS"

That is NOT Jamoon/Jamun. Jamun is Java plum and black plum. That is Chrysophllum cainito, Star Apple

Clearly NOT jamoon. Not sure if Trinidad even have jamoon. Jamoon is a South American tree. This thing shown here is star apple. Could be green with white inside or purple with purple inside as well.
