Help me identify this fruit
« on: September 14, 2019, 11:08:35 AM »
First, I thought they were longons. But nope.  I had a tree in my backyard for like 20yrs. No fruit. Chopped it down. Today some gave me the fruit to try.  I don't really like it. Maybe  it ripped yet. A little sweet, has wedges.

Yes, It is a Wampee fruit tree. I used to like it back in Vietnam, but not any more.  My sister has one tree in Arcadia, Ca. and I only have one or two occasionally. It is sweet and sour at the same time.

Thanks guys. I didnt know the english name.  I heard the vietnamese dry them and season them.  Eat them like snack.  Never seen the fresh version.  I dont really like it. not sure why my tree never fruited.  Oh well. Good to know.
