There at least 18 species of this beautiful fruit. Both the fruit and the pads are edible and have considerable healing properties. Sweet and fleshy with numerous seeds. Flavour is delicate and varies in intensity, watermelon, strawberry, banana with hints of citrus and honey. I was obsessed with these are a child and kind of still am 😁. Be sure to try them if you're ever in Sicily.
