Identification..
« on: January 31, 2022, 07:03:32 AM »
Hi :)

I need you, to help me to identify this fruit that had been gathered in Guadeloupe ( West indies ). Someone there, a local, tell me that it was " Gros Café"  ( in English, literally : Big Coffee ).
Inside, beneath the orange/red skin, there is a single seed, that doesn't much look like a coffee bean..     But the tree, its foliage, the disposition of the branches,..  made me, automatically think about a Coffea at the first sight, then I doubted, and that's a reason I ask you : According to you, what it is ?

Looks to be peanut butter fruit.

It is Bunchosia glandulifera. It is marketed in the USA as Bunchosia argentea.
Yum yum!
