Pouteria fruit ID
« on: December 04, 2018, 03:44:21 AM »
My friend found this one in Thailand. Said it tasted like good cake consistency. Could it be Canistel?
Iíve never seen one so pointy. Thanks.

I would say your guess is right, to me it also looks like Canistel (Pouteria campechiana). There is no other fruit I could think of that looks like that. Canistel fruits can be found in very different shapes.
