Belize Mystery Fruit - What is it?? (Updated March 6)

Robert handed us some fruit from a tree outside of Bolo's mom's house and told us it's a.... Kymeeto? Chymeato? I asked for the spelling, but he doesn't know, which has been making it extremely difficult to look up. It kind of looks like a Cherimoya or a Custard Apple (from the pics and descriptions I found from Google and Bing) but it isn't either one...



This is the Mystery Fruit - that white sappy stuff is very sticky


The inside - pulpy/fleshy looking, dripping with milky white juiciness


Big black seeds


This fruit is super tasty - it almost has the flavor and texture of a cantaloupe! The only part I didn't enjoy were the mucousy, gelatinous pod-like coverings that the seeds are in... it's what I imagine biting into an eyeball would feel like. I guess you're not supposed to eat that part.






 So?? What the heck is it??

Update March 6 - My friend Aiesha from San Pedro told me that it is spelled Caimito!

  10. One of the tell tale signs of video are the sawtooth like jagged edges that are produced by the interlacing process. In short, interlacing refers to the half frame display of video.

  11. Not only are the characters out there serving their country, being all "America's finest", which can make you feel like more of a loser, but the gore factor is dangerous territory.
