thanks Karissa! WIndlord it's super good when it opens up on the tree and gets a little soft. my dad usually picks and freezes the fruit (flesh lol) when firm and not as ripe as I like it (for cooking). the fruit has to open up on its own. if you force the fruit open, it's toxic. from wikipedia

"The unripened or inedible portions of the fruit contain the toxins hypoglycin A and hypoglycin B. Hypoglycin A is found in both the seeds and the arils, while hypoglycin B is found only in the seeds.[4] Hypoglycin is converted in the body tomethylenecyclopropyl acetic acid (MCPA). Hypoglycin and MCPA are both toxic. MCPA inhibits several enzymes involved in the breakdown of acyl CoA compounds. Hypoglycin binds irreversibly to coenzyme Acarnitine and carnitine acyltransferases I and II[10] reducing their bioavailability and consequently inhibiting beta oxidation of fatty acids. Beta oxidation normally provides the body with ATPNADH, and acetyl CoA which is used to supplement the energy produced by glycolysis. Glucose stores are consequently depleted leading to hypoglycemia.[11] Clinically, this condition is called Jamaican vomiting sickness. Ill effects occur only when the immature fruit is consumed."

the fruit will ripen on its own once picked too. it can be picked before it opens too. illegal to sell the fresh fruit in US. usually cooked but great raw actually

sounds good!  

Is there a way it's supposed to be eaten or a certain ripeness it must attain in order for it to be safe?  Unusual question about fruit, but I'm recalling something unique about this fruit.
