pineapple guava

Looks like a cross between an avocado and a green lumpy chicken egg. The flavor is sweet and tropical, like a papaya melony thing. Juicy flesh divided into clear gelatinous gooey seed pulp. Flesh is firmer and slightly gritty closer to the skin. Can be eaten with a spoon. Great in smoothies. Sweet cinnamon-tasting flowers also edible.
