This is the Jamboo fruit, commonly known as Chambakka in Kerala. They are about the size of a lemon and have a sweet watery taste..

Well, I’ve learned something new today : not seen these before which means they probably don’t travel very well! I like the simple way you have shown them, too.

Yeah I remember this. I was wondering about this strange looking fruit being sold on the streets of Kolkata. I was with a friend and she told me its called Jamrul there and we bought it .. yes it was watery and fibery with a subtle taste ... it was good tasty indeed :)
