There are many strains of this tropical fruit. Today I harvested my first fruits of the strain of Scarlet Mombin that Tanja Vidovic got me at ECHO about four years ago. I have tasted one strain with a big pit and quite un-flavorful pale flesh before at the Tampa Rare Fruit Council.....this one has a small pit and yellow flesh that tastes like a mix of peach and strawberry! The red ones I picked from the branches plus the mulch, but even the pale ones I picked have great fruity flavor, a little tangy which I like better since I don't enjoy sweet ripe fruits. John
