Do You Know The Guinep? - Creative Monday Blog Hop

           I have a lot of fruit trees around. Last year my Lychee tree went down with Hurricane Sandy's onslaught so I am missing lychees or what are otherwise called Chinese guineps.  However the other type of guinep has been in abundance with one tree near to my home bearing heavily.  Many persons keep coming for more and more guineps and they are quite sweet too.  Do you know the guinep? Here are some pictures of a bunch of guineps and one showing the inside of the fruit.

Hi Judy! So happy you found my blog, followed, and linked up with my Inspired Sunday blog party! I am now following you and am looking forward to learning more about you and your world. I have eaten lychees, but I had absolutely no idea what they looked like! Thanks for the education. I am a writer, albeit, not an excellent one, but my friend Susan at Ecletic Shorebird is a writer extraordinaire. This link is a wonderful example of her insightful and humorous work: http://eclecticshorebird.blogspot.com/2013/10/demons-are-like-pigeons.html. Have a wonderful week!

I like most fruits. I have never tried those. I am going to have to see if I can find any around here.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I hope you get to try this fruit someday Betty!

I hope someday you will get to try both types of guineps Katie! Have a great Monday.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot Susan! Have a great Monday.

Sandee said...

I've never even heard of this fruit before. What does it taste like. Okay, that could be a silly question.

Have a terrific day Judy. :)

Lizbeth McGow said...

Hi Judy! Boy every time you post one of the foods native to Jamaica I feel like going back home..it's a sweet and sad feeling at the same time! We called them Mamones in Panama. They are a delicious treat in the winter season. I only had a few of them in my life and feel kind of guilty if I even have one at this age. My mom never let me or my brother eat them like the rest of the kids because of the seeds, they are like marbles and kind of slippery and she was terrified of any of us chocking on them..so they were forbidden fruits for us..Although...she always was able to tell when my brother had one behind her back because his white uniform shirt would show stains after washing it...typical of the fruit juices dripping all over you, LOL (did you know this fact about this little guys?) I love their salmon bright color and that they grow in little bunches like grapes! So unique! Thank you for sharing and bringing back memories of my childhood. Hugs, Lizy

Theresa said...

I have never heard of these. They kind of remind me of a cooked pear when you cut them open. I bet they are really tasty!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Our guineps are quite sweet. Enjoy the rest of your Monday Sandee!

Judy Haughton-James said...

These guineps are sweet Theresa! Persons keep coming to us for them. My family and I happily share them.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thank you very much for your interesting comments Lizy! You are so right, I can remember the days when adults would be worried about the seeds being swallowed by children. I remember hearing of them resulting in deaths. Strangely enough I have not heard about that recently.I am very careful when eating them even at this age!:) Have a wonderful week.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh you are Welcome Judy. See you tomorrow for more WW Linky! ♥

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks again for linking up Renae! We will definitely meet for Wordless Wednesday tomorrow.

Leovi said...

I have not tried this fruit, but it looks very rich!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I hope you get to try it in the future Leovi!

Michell Pulliam said...

Hey Judy, are these the same as the scupadine grape? They look similar...very interesting! Sorry to hear about your Lychee tree! :-( Have a lovely week my friend!

Judy Haughton-James said...

No, they are not scupadine grapes Michelle. They also look like limes!

mail4rosey said...

I've never seen one. Do you slice them to eat them, or just eat right from the fruit?

I'm sorry the nasty hurricane robbed you of your Lychee Tree.

Judy Haughton-James said...

There is big seed inside Rosey so it is not easy to slice it. When you break the outer shell you just eat the fruit around the seed. Have a great day.

Lisa said...

Thanks for hosting, Judy! Hope you are feeling 100%! :-)

Judy Haughton-James said...

I am fighting on Lisa! Have a good day.

Jill Shepherd said...

I've never seen guinep's before Judy - I'll have to look out for them to try sometime!
Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a fabulous week!

I hope you get to try them someday Jill. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Natasha Peter said...

OMG!!! You just took me way back into my childhood! I loved these as a child, growing up on St. Croix. We would pick them and eat hem all afternoon. This is probably one of the only reasons I miss not being in St. Croix (other than family, of course).

Thanks for sharing on Turn It Up Tuesdays! We love having you! :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Hi Natasha,
I am glad that this brought back memories of your time in St. Croix. I look forward to linking up every week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Judy

They look delicious! Wish I could grow tropical fruit, but alas...the snow is coming soon to our area!
