Name That Fruit: Father's Day Edition


 Gather round boys and girls, because it's time once again, to play everyone's favorite game....Name.  That.  Fruit!  (Applause!)   

Because we'll be celebrating Father's Day this weekend, I thought I would share one of Hubby's favorite summertime fruits.

The first time I saw our mystery ingredient at the market here in Mexico, I thought the green, unripened fruits were tiny green tomatoes.  But after a few days of sitting on my kitchen counter, they transformed into these bright golden gems.  


Do you have any idea what they are?  Leave your answer(s) in the comments and check back tomorrow to see if you are right, and to see one of my favorite ways to use them.
