Manufacturer Description

Ketembilla is often called Ceylon Gooseberry; sometimes Ketambilla, or Kitembilla; also known as Aberia in Cuba and Central America. The shrub or small tree reaches no more than 15-20 ft (4.5-6 m) in height but its long, slender, arching, wide-spreading branches may cover 30 ft (9 m) of ground. Sharp spines to 1 1/2 in (4 cm) long, are plentiful on the trunk and lower branches. The alternate leaves are elliptical to ovate, pointed, 2 3/4 to 4 in (7-10 cm) long, wavy-margined, gray-green, finely velvety, with pinkish, woolly petioles, and thin in texture. Male, female and hermaphrodite flowers are borne on separate trees. They are petalless, greenish-yellow, nearly 1/2 in (1.25 cm) wide and clustered in the leaf axils. Recipes developed in Hawaii include juice, spiced jelly, Ketembilla-papaya jam, Ketembilla-guava jelly, and Ketembilla-apple butter.
