Round / egg shaped fruit.
Thick, green, pebbly skin changes colour to purple/black when ripe/ready to eat. Skin does not yield to pressure easily – once soft or shriveled, fruit is overripe.
Small to medium (140 – 350g) – large fruit an exception.
In proportion to fruit size – small fruit, small seed.
Mid / late May from the Limpopo Province until October from Kwazulu-Natal.
‘Out of season’ fruit is available year round.
Excellent shelf life with very few post harvest problems. Store at +5 degrees C – NOT COLDER.
Rich and nutty, as opposed to the stringy/watery “Natal” seedling variety.
