Chennet(te), the Fruit

The fruit which gave me my online ID anyway.


Also called guinep in other islands (including Tobago).


Bought in the Chaguanas market last week in Trinidad.


Wikipedia entry :"The mamoncillo (Melicoccus bijugatus), also known as the mamón (although the word is considered obscene in some Spanish speaking countries), chenet, guaya, gnep, ginep, skinnip (in Jamaica, St. Kitts) genip, guinep, ginnip, kenèp (in Haiti), quenepa (in Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic), ackee (in Barbados), Spanish lime, or limoncillo, is a fruit-bearing tree in the soapberry family Sapindaceae..."


I've now blogged on some of my recent fruit photos
