The ‘Chiku’ fruit is 4-8 cm in diameter, very much resembling a smooth-skinned potato and containing 2-10 seeds. Inside, its flesh ranges from pale yellow to earthy brown color with a grainy texture akin to that of a well-ripened pear. The flavour is exceptionally sweet. The chikoo trees yield fruit twice a year, though flowering may continue year round. The fruit has a high latex content and does not ripen until picked. Some are round and some are oval with pointed ends.
