Pomme cythère or “pomsee-tay” is also called “golden apple,” but is really ambarella, a tree fruit in the citrus family. In Jamaica it is called June Apple. Once upon a time it was near impossible to find this fruit in the United States, but happily, as professional chefs’ interest in unusual citrus has grown, fruits like ugli fruit, pomelo, and pomme cythère are pretty widely available. Pomme cythère now makes regular appearances at Caribbean markets everywhere and makes a really wonderful curry.
