Mayan Fruit ID
« on: September 19, 2022, 03:37:00 AM »
Hello I am watching a video on YouTube and came across a fruit tree I can't place. Any help would be appreciated. They called them "uvas"(grapes) but they aren't. They said the local name was "chim susu" but I don't see anything related to that name.

Here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Om4TPTrLKUM The fruit and tree appear around the 2 minute mark

reminds me of Antidesma bunius Bignay.
But I don't think it is Bignay...

Peace

Yes could be that genus.
If the children liked it then maybe it can be a grape substitute in wet tropical areas.

Thinking maybe P. donnell-smithii or P. Chiapensis. They are generally listed as edible, look super tasty :)
