noun
Ambarella. An edible fruit growing on large trees up to 30m. The fruits have thick, sometimes leathery skin and dendritic (fibrous or hairy) seeds. While unripe, the flesh is crisp and firm with a tart acidic taste. As it ripens, it turns yellow, becomes soft and develops a sweet taste and fragrant smell. Both ripe and unripe fruits can be eaten raw. It is also often prepared by juicing, stewing with ginger and sugar, pickling with peppers and spices, or made into chow.

I remember peeling the green june plums, rubing them with salt, then washing the salt off before eating them. Delicious!

Jamaicans call it June Plum. I love the large ripe ones. They mostly use the young green ones to make juice from the smaller newer type shrubs. The older large trees bear larger fruit, that is lovely when ripe or half ripe.
