Product Details

Chennette is a slow-growing, evergreen fruit tree that can reach 18 – 25 metres in height. It should be planted prior the rainy season in a fertile, well-drained soil in full sunlight. The stem grows upright but is slightly angled, usually 30 – 60 cm in diameter. Trees have a dense, round crown which can produce fruit in 4 – 5 years. The fruit is a round, green drupe containing a large, single seed and peach-coloured gelatinous pulp. It is generally eaten raw when ripe as it is quite juicy and sweet with a slightly tangy flavour. Chennette fruits bear from June to September and are commonly sold in bunches along the roadsides and in local markets.
