Babaco (Carica Pentagana)

A large fruit seemingly native to the north-west area of South America (where it is often called 'chamburo', but now cultivated in Europe and New Zealand. It's thought to be a hybrid of the pawpaw - as it doesn't occur in the wild in its own right. The fruit is star-shaped in section, and has apricot coloured fruit when ripe.
