Description

The quenepa, also known by the name mamoncillo, is similar to the lychee and eaten much the same way. Peel off the thin green rind and eat the interior except for the large pit in the center, which can be roasted like a sunflower seed. Tasting like a sweet lime with a hint of banana, the pulp is gelatinous and juicy but very scant. Due to the small amount of edible fruit, it is most commonly boiled and used in cold drinks.
