name of South American fruit?

SillySam | Jul 19, 2004 03:25 PM

I bought this fruit the other day and can't remember the name of it. Can anyone help me out here?

It looked like a tiny lime with a green leathery skin. You'd pop the skin between your teeth and remove it to reveal a peach colored flesh around a huge pit. Most of the fruit is the pit with a tiny amount of flesh that was a little sour and sweet. The fruit stand guy told me it was from South America and called it something like "kenapes" but when I started to look it up I couldn't find any more info on it.

Has anyone else had these? Do you know what it's called?
