Babaco (Grafted) For Sale (Size: Large)  (Grafted)Botanical Name: Carica pentagona

An attractive torpedo shaped fruit with effervescent flesh. The texture of the golden fruit is light and refreshing. The slightly acid flavour has a hint of strawberry, pineapple and pawpaw and can be made into a tasty thirst quenching drink.
