Water apple

Is there such term as childhood fruits? As we progress, so have the fruits. This is what water apples are to me. Small, red, a slight tinged of sour. Saw them again at the market at Bayan Baru. Seller havested from a single tree in the backyard of a kampong house. Fruit tree nobody would want to have an orchard for. Bought some for nostalgia. Children thought it looked and tasted unfruity?Strange that these were the fruits we grew up eating. Organic, wild and not GM.
