Its shape is oval and its skin is brown. Inside, the flesh is intense green coloured with black seeds and a white heart. Although its origin is Chinese, it has already become a common fruit for consumption in our homes.
It specially stands out thanks to its soluble and insoluble fibre, which provides a fairly powerful laxative effect, as well as the property of regulating cholesterol levels and the intestine.

It is best consumed from October to March, although it can be found both in September and April.
