The texture of topi tambo is like that of a water chestnut; nice and crunchy. The taste is similar to corn, but not as sweet. However, I find that the added salt brings out the topi tambo’s flavour a bit. When boiled, the tough outer skin is peeled to reveal the white tuber.
This fruit is called chenette here in Trinidad, it's also known as Spanish lime, genip or mamoncillo. I haven't had this for quite some time, I got some today, the fruit has an outer shell that you bite half of and inside is a large seed surrounded by meaty flesh that you just kinda scrape of with your teeth or suck.
