mamoncillo definition and meaning

What is a "mamoncillo"?

Mamoncillo, often referred to as Spanish lime, is a tropical fruit that delights with its small, green, and bumpy exterior. Native to the Caribbean and Central America, it offers a unique taste experience with its tangy and sweet pulp, which envelops a sizable seed at its core. When bitten into, the mamoncillo releases a burst of refreshing and citrusy flavors, reminiscent of lime and lychee. It is commonly enjoyed fresh, peeling back the skin to reveal the succulent fruit inside. Mamoncillo is a popular snack in its native regions, providing a delightful combination of taste and texture that is both tangy and satisfying.
