Fruit ID Big Island Hawaii
« on: March 13, 2023, 02:33:22 PM »
Aloha!

I got this fruit from a roadside fruit stand in South Kona. Its about the size of a baseball and is highly aromatic. One of the best things I've ever smelled. The smell is somewhat reminiscent of an apple but also very floral. Will post pics of the inside when I cut it open, hopefully when its ripe.

Probably an araca-boi, sour but can make a nice drink if you add enough sugar / cane juice
