Description

Does this fruit taste like your childhood? It originates from South America but grows here in South Florida in very limited quantities. This fruit is also very popular in Central America and the Caribbean.

Indigenous people of the Caribbean and South America (Tainos and Mayans to name a few) called them “kenep” which is why many countries have names that sound similar or rhyme with it.

Almost every country has a different name for them. Some common names are: guinep, limoncillo, kenep, quenepa, chenette, mamon, huaya and more!

The flavor is tangy and sweet- similar to limeade. The look of it is similar to a longan or lychee but the texture is softer. 

It’s like a lime flavored lychee with a hint of peach.

They’re freshly picked every week when in season (July-September) and shipped to your doorstep. 

The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit: 
Small Box contains up to 3-5 pounds.

- Large Box contains up to 8-10 pounds.
