I bought this bunch of babies from a man on the side of the road- thinking they were Lychees ! Instead I met Lychees twin, Mamoncillo’s !

+ Hailing originally from Puerto Rico & Latin American Countries

+ Mamoncillo’s are little fruits that are best described as a cross between a Lychee & a Lime.

+ They can either be sweet or sournatures surprise candy !!

+ If sour they can be eaten with a dash of chili powder & salt- or – if sweet can be blended into a smoothie or cocktail !

+ They have a firm outer layer that has to be peeled off

+ On the inside is a tart, tangy, creamy pulp !

+ You suck on it by putting the entire fruit inside of your mouth then discarding the big seed afterwards !

+ Hence how this little green ball received his name: Mamoncillo as mamar means “to suck” in spanish !

it might be hard to find this exotic little fruit, but give it a try ! they are soo worth it !
