The fruits have a green skin that have the appearance of overlapping warty scales. Matures fruits turn brown with a fissured surface. The white flesh is segmented and contains numerous hard brown to black inedible seeds that are 1/2in long and wide. In its native regions the fruit is usually eaten served chilled and is frequently used in desserts.
