limoncillos...mmmmmm wonderful Dominican fruit

purple mangosteen - Yummy! cool fact, on the bottom of the fruit you will see a pattern on the bottom. Count that and it'll tell you how many sections are in the center.

Mamoncillos are somewhat like a cross between a lychee and a lime, has a tight and thin, but rigid layer of skin, traditionally cracked by the teeth. Inside the skin is the tart, tangy, creamy pulp, which is sucked by putting the whole fruit inside the mouth (hence the name mamoncillo as mamar means "to suck") because the seed takes most of the volume of what is inside the skin.

Who needs a job. I can find fresh fruit straight from the tree and sleeping on the beach is free.

I haven't had one of these in forever!!! I need to write my grandpa to tell him to send some over from Puerto rico....made my mouth water!

Mamones- commonly called Spanish lime, genip, guinep, genipe, ginepa, quenepa, canepa, mamon, limoncillo or mamoncillo.

Spanish Lime/Genip/Quenepa (Melicoccus bijugatus). The Spanish Lime is a very close relative of the Lychee and Longan. The pulp is tart and melting, and it clings tenaciously to the seeds.

The sexiest Hairy fruit (Rambutan) in Indonesian or Malay literally means hairy or hairy fruit caused by the 'hair' that covers this fruit. In Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua, it is known as mamón chino.
