I know a house about 25 minutes away and there are 3 trees there, a couple years ago
I was driving by and saw the bright red fruit on the trees and stopped and talked to the
owner. He was  Jamaican and loves the fruit. Today I was driving by there and noticed only
one tree had a couple fruit on it and they were pink not red, I assume they are not ripe?
The trees looked heavily pruned probably due to the hurricane and may have affected the
production this year?
