Back in stock: 4-6 weeks
Out of stock
Delicious refreshing fruit high in Vitamin C, and can be eaten at almost any stage of ripeness. Seeded inside like a passionfruit or pomegranate; the peel is edible and rich in nutrients, and the juice is said to taste like banana-passionfruit-cucumber-lime. Just like a margarita, salt is said to improve the flavour.
