Tiesa tastes and looks like boiled egg yolk

Amongst many other little known tropical fruits we grow for instance Tiesa (Pouteria campechiana) at Discovery Garden Pattaya (Thailand). Due to the texture of the slightly sweet yellow flesh, which tastes a bit like boiled egg yolk, tiesa is often referred to as “eggfruit”. Like graviolas, the fruits are harvested between early January and late February in Pattaya.
