Two bunches of the Palmyra fruits / Ice Apples / a bus top
Available in plenty in summer, the fruits are delicious with juice inside and keeps the body cool. You cut open this hard shell and scoop the tender fruit out.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

very interesting. It is hard to judge the scale. They look small, though your description of cutting them and scooping out the inside make them sound larger.

25 Jun 2017 1:47am

@Harry: Hmmm...they are the size of a coconut which had to be broken..and the fruit inside will be small and sweet and have some liquid inside. I shall post the image of this fruit for the benefit of all here...very soon :)
