Kinda like an orange vitamin c tablet in taste. They get heavily laden with fruit and enjoy warm weather. They look a bit like a bright orange apricot but the seeds are a bit big. You can eat the skin. like a dulcis.

Sorry OP don't mean to hijack this post, one last question for Mike; any ideas how long from seed to fruit?

ManVsFruit- Itís all good, no worries man, feel free to hijack all you want.

Thanks Mike, do you prefer dulce over imbe? And what month does imbe ripen for you?
