A bowl of slices of Pommceythere Chow

In Trinidad, we have a way of taking ordinary fruit and kicking it up a notch with local herbs, seasonings, and pepper known as Chow. It can be done with almost any fruit; however, the Pommecythere fruit, also known as Golden Apple or June Plum, has a unique taste and texture that makes this version of Chow challenging to put down. When you taste the sweet, salty, tangy, herby, and spicy flavors combined with the bite and crunch from the Pommecythere, you will wonder why you haven't been eating fruit this way all the time.
