This fruit reminded me much of my primary school life. It's 10sen per portion. The canteen lady will put a few pieces of this cut up fruit onto a piece of plastic and drizzle it with chilli sweet soy sauce. Sweet, sour, hot, salty... yummy. And it's not a daily treat, the canteen only sells this once a blue moon, so when they do, my friends and I will be joining the queue to buy our 10sen portion. Actually, my favourite part of the fruit is the seed. I'll eat up the flesh parts quickly and save the seed for the last. It looks like a fuzzy alien. Spiky fibres and hard. Not like a peach seed, but reallly like a medusa head. I like chewing on the spikes, the pain I get when it massages my gums is addictive. Makes my saliva flow and flow.
