Distinguishing Characters
It is globose or slightly pear-shaped with a thick, hard rind and does not split upon ripening.

The woody shell is smooth and green, gray until it is fully ripe when it turns yellow.

Inside are 8 to 15 or 20 sections filled with aromatic orange pulp, each section with 6 (8) to 10 (15) flattened-oblong seeds each about 1 cm long, bearing woolly hairs and each enclosed in a sac of adhesive, transparent mucilage that solidifies on drying.
