Tzimbalo Etymology

Species similar to Pepino Dulce (melon pear), but with smaller, rounded fruits, about 2-3 cm wide. Green skin striped in purple, turning cream when fruit is fully ripe. White flesh turns yellow when mature. Tart, sour flavor that improves and gets sweeter with age. Flesh is mucilaginous and juicy. Seems earlier than Pepino Dulce and easier to grow in the north. Smaller plants, about 40-50 cm high, crawling. Good ornamental potential with its long trusses of fruits hanging down. Can be grown in pots. About 80 days (?). Also known as Lloron, Pepino lloron et Mamoncillo. Rare plant!
