Hola, felicidades por dar a conocer esta maravillosa fruta. Yo tengo un arbolito que hace como 15 anos sembraron mis padres y me decían que lo cuidara por que ya se estaba perdiendo en la región (sur de Veracruz) ya que cada día menos familias le tenían en sus patios.
Es un arbolito muy generoso, pues sus ramas se cualgan de tanto fruto que da. las semillas se dejan secar y se tuestan en un comal.
Es una fruta muy dulce y en agua es muy refrescante, ademas de que no se necesita añadir azúcar. GRACIAS
