Padoo Fruit

I stumbled upon this fruit at a roadside fruit stall in Macoya today. While trying to steal a photo of the fruits the vendor was kind enough to offer me a sample and made sure I knew the name of the fruit. I understand that the fruit is called Padoo and is not very common. The tree is about the size of a julie mango tree. The flesh of the seed has a melt in your mouth sensation. However I found that after the initial sweet taste there was not much flavour.

  1. Waay, your first time eating padoo? Your right, it's smooth and sweet in the beginning but quickly fades away. We had a tree right in the back yard. Forgot that it's in season now. Nice pics!

  2. tasted it for the first's good
