Do you know what this is? I spied it in my garden today. Here are some hints.

  • It is a fruit.
  • It comes in many colors.
  • it doesn't grow in cold climates.
  • When ripe, it has a distinctive smell.

What is your best guess?

Guava, most probably.

·

And you are most probably right!! Actually, you are right!!! Well done!! I am assuming you have them growing where you live? What kind do you have? This is a Mexican Guava which is yellowish on the outside and cream colored on the inside. Very tasty!!

·
·

Yes, we have several types of them. And this is very popular food here.
All of them are tasty.

I guess it's not an apple?

·

not an apple :)

A plant?

·

It is a plant - but which one?

·
·

I haven't asked the plant yet.
But I could call the plant: Meyer lemon =)

·
·
·

nope. Not a citrus :)

Are you growing durian fruit. I have never come in contact with it but I am told it is very smelly.

·

No, I am not. And I heard too that they stink!!

Hey, @mariannewest I can not say what it is, you tell me what is the result.

·

I will tell you - but let's first see if anyone can guess it :)

Our area is very warm so I have not seen any such fruit in our area.

·

It does grow in very warm areas.... Not so much in desert climates. More tropical heat.

Those leaves remind me of a quava or fig tree 🙂
But the stem is looking like a lychee. 🤔

·

It is one of them!! You are good!!! And your meme is coming tomorrow. My mind is on sleep right now lol

·
·

YaY 😁
I’m excited to see your meme as well.
Especially after a full nights sleep to come up with an excellent one. 🤩🤩🤩

I'm going to guess - Mango! :D Maybe.....

My partner is a horticulturist and is trying to rack his brain over this one! Hehe.

·

No, not mango :) go, brain, go - you can figure this out lol.
Someone already narrowed it down to 3. That might help...

·
·

He decided to go with fig! So I'll take his answer as my own, haha :D

·
·
·

nope. Now you have a 50/50 chance lol - there was a clue regarding the smell....

pineapple

·

No, sorry, not a pineapple :)

·

Pineapple ? they don't grow in trees ...

·
·

Yup, and their leaves are very different.

Is it beans?

·

no, beans are growing on a vine - this is a tree :)

·
·

Hmmm, I have no idea then. Is it a sort of fruit?

Lemon

·

No, not a lemon. Good try :)

·
·

grapefruit

·
·
·

all good tries - it is Guava :)

·
·
·
·

oooh :D

An Egyptian bi-bulb fur plant?

·

That is an excellent guess 🤓 But no!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess Mango.

·

Sorry, but no :(

·
·

Darn! It looks tropical, but I have no idea.

·
·
·

it is tropical - guava :)

·
·
·
·

Now I see it. ;-)
