With its deep red, almost purple, waxy skin and oval to pear-like shape - this fruit has stolen my heart.. This Jamaican apple has one large seed, and the flesh may be crisp or spongy and very juicy. I was informed by one of the locals to choose an otaheite with dark flesh, since the darker the fruit the more sweet it will be.
I had the pleasure of tasting this delightful fruit mixed into a smoothy with ginger root. If I had to choose only one drink to have for the rest of my life it would most likely be this refreshing fruit drink. I can only imagine the other wonderful recipes that the otaheite may be used for. I've heard that a wonderful addition to a breakfast muffin is a otaheite jam complimented with brown sugar.
