I've had this in Guyana before, but it was probably imported from one of the other islands.

I am so glad someone else knows about this fruit, because when I speak about it people look at me in disbelief, yes it grows in Essequibo, Guyana, my great aunt had a tree in her yard which was near the ocean, when the grapes are ripe they turn that wine colour inside and out and the texture of the skin is similar to that of an apricot, with one seed. Very Delicious.

These grow in The Bahamas. I grew up eating them there. They are found mostly near the beaches

There are lots of them in Tobago. But difficult to find the sweet ripe ones on the trees before someone else ;)

Everyone's saying how great they taste. I'll agree. Grew up in Delray Beach Florida with a large tree in the backyard so, you can imagine. Can't find them ripe anymore. can someone tell me when they become mature in The Bahamas?
