RE: help ID this tropical fruit tree

When you sowed the seed, you might have seen the seed. Gooseberry seeds are small. I haven't seen bilimbi fruit in real. But it looks like the fruit is bigger than gooseberry. Seed might be bigger too. if the seed is smaller than cherry seed, it might be gooseberry.
