Locally known as “Bilembines”, this tropical fruit is slightly sweet and goes well with toss salad, fruit salad and as dish garnishing. A great addition to any fruit farm or home garden.

Simple and easy to grow, and grows well in containers in warm climates. Plant seed 1/2″ inch deep in porous well draining soil in 2″ – 4″ inch planter cup. Place in warm sunny to partly sunny location and keep moist; seed should sprout in approx. 15 to 30 days, sometimes longer.
