What To Look For
Small aromatic pulpy fruit in a thin, rough shell; has a sweet edible pulp and a large seed. About 1" in diameter.
Easy Storage and Preparation
Starting at the stalk end of the fruit, cut through the rough, brittle skin with a small knife; it should peel off cleanly. Ripe fruit has a pink or red blush on its skin.
Best known Chinese fruit; eaten raw, dried, preserved or canned. Often poached in syrup.
