Amazon fruit tree chewing gum?
This is my first visit to this forum and first time posting. My apologies in advance if I make a mistake in etiquette.
I am trying to identify a fruit tree that I came across while visiting my husband's land in the Amazon region or Ecuador. It is a fruit tree with small, yellow fruit about 2-3 cm in size. When peeled, there is a thin layer of latex-like ooze. The fruit is a white spongy pulp. When you eat it, the texture turns into a very soft chewing gum (like HubbaBubba). Surrounding the seed there is a syrup-like liquid that is sweet, with a wonderful flavor. I have two photos, but I'm not sure if there is a way to upload them to the forum. My husband's family calls this fruit "chicle," Spanish for gum.
Thank you for your help,
