Jamaican Cherry (Muntingia calabura)

I am so spoiled by daily feasting on this rare tropical fruit whose flavor can be compared to a mix of ripe watermelon and pink cotton candy. The tree itself was planted when young in a 7 gallon Water Wise Container Garden with extra large drainage holes drilled maybe six inches from the bottom.....I keep the area around it well mulched and the growth rate has been amazing.
