Positive mrs_colla On Nov 29, 2011, mrs_colla from Marin, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

The tree is not the shapeliest, the flowers don't smell (at least in my climate they don't) and it has thorns. But o my, those fruits! I love to keep them on the tree until they drop. Then I cut them in half and scoop the vessel pops out with my finger. The scent from the rind is so special, and the flavor is intense, not too sour, not sweet. Just a delicious treat!
