However, althought there are Granada trees in the Philippines, the fruit is not as popular as the other fruits in the country. Granada is also known as Dalima in Mindanao. When we were young we were so amazed with this fruits as it was named after Granada which is translated as "grenade" in English, we always thought that when we open or cut the fruit it will explode. Indeed, it explodes with its delicious flavor. Granada is one "granade" which never brought harm, but joy when eaten.
