Purple Mombin, Jocote, Hog Plum, Ciruela. Very popular aromatic fruit. Good variety with dark red fruit, thin skin and small seed.
The Plant with Benefits! This fruit is surprisingly juicy and sweet, and has a unique pleasant flavor. Sometimes it is sold in frozen fruit sections of ethnic stores; however the fresh fruit is way more delicious! No wonder this is one of our hot sellers. The tree is very easy to grow and can thrive in almost neglect. In Caribbean, they even use sticks for creating live hedges - cuttings root easily. Very fast growing, and fruiting right away.
Varieties/colors of the Hog Plum: the red is the smallest fruit, the yellow has the largest fruit, and the orange is in the middle.

Recommended Fertilizer: SUNSHINE C-Cibus - Crop Nutrition Booster
