Common Name - Paneer fruit
The fruits are 1 – 2 inches wide, almost round or a little longer than wide. When ripe they may be greenish or dull-yellow flushed with pink. The skin is smooth and thin, and the firm flesh yellowish, sweet and rose scents. The texture is crisp, almost crunchy when the fruit is ripe and freshly picked. They contain one to four medium hard, round seeds, which rattle around inside the fruit. The seed, as well as the roots, are regarded as poisonous. Seedless, thick-fleshed fruits have been experimentally produced by treating opened flowers with growth regulators such as naphthoxy acetic acid.
