What plant/fruit is this????

thistlefurSeptember 6, 2008

Since I was a kid I ate a fruit off trees growing all over here in AZ though I do not think they are native.

The fruit that I hate was a bit bigger than an old style silver dollar. Yellow thin skin with a small layer of fruit meat about 1/4in maybe less all around 3 large seeds that formed a ball. The seeds are as if it was an avacado pit cut into 3 even wedges.

I would bite the top off squeeze out the seeds and eat the fruit or push the meat out and discard the skin.

Any ideas what I have been eating, lol????
