Place of Origin - South America


Guinep (Melicoccus bijugatus) is a fruit bearing tree native to tropics including South and Central America, and parts of the Caribbean. Guineps grow in bunches, which is, in turn, similar to lychees. They resemble olives because there is a large and reasonably hard seed in the centre of the guinep fruit.


Guinep is believed to be native in the areas of northern South America. It is also believed that it has been introduced into the Caribbean before the arrival of Columbus. The fruit has been properly studied and classified during the 18th and 19th century by different botanists and taxonomists.  


Guinep is widely cultured in the areas of northern South America and Central America. It is also cultivated and naturalised widely throughout the tropics around the globe. It can be found as an ornamental tree in South Florida and Hawaii and it is also cultured in Gabon, Cameroon, and in several Pacific Islands.  

Flavours & Texture

Guinep tastes like a cross between a sweet lime and a lychee but with the texture of powdery jelly. When ripe, the fruits have a bittersweet, wine-like flavour and have mild laxative properties. 


You can eat the guinep fruit raw by simply biting the fruit skin until you get to the pulp. Additionally, you can use it in jams, juices, or you can boil it in order to make a cold drink.
