The Southeast Asian Wampee, or Wampi, is a refreshing gelatinous fruit with a texture similar to citrus in the skin, and grape in the flesh. The Wampee’s sticky, juicy fruit grows in aromatic clusters and changes in flavor depending on ripeness, starting sour and growing sweeter as it ripens. It can be eaten out-of-hand or made into deserts or jellies. Part of the Rutaceae family, Wampee share a similar tangy, acidic skin to their kumquat relative and are often eaten with the skin. The trees themselves bear lovely greenish-white blossoms and maintain a dense canopy for any food forest.
