    Default O restaurant at CN

    This is a really silly question but...how do you (correctly) pronounce the name of the restaurant that starts with an O at Couples Negril? My husband and I just keep calling it the O restaurant when we talk about it! lol

    Oh-tah-hay-tee

    Oh-ta-he-A-tee

    Thanks!!

    O·ta·hei·te

    The Jamaican otaheiti Apple or maple apple is indigenous to the Pacific Islands. This is also reflected in its name as it is believe that the first tree was first seen in Tahiti. The tree thrives well in sub-tropical temperatures; hence these fruits are very popular in Jamaica. The seeds are quite easy to grow and this underscore how the why these trees are ubiquitous throughout Jamaica.The Otaheite apple can be enjoyed in many ways. In Jamaica is mostly eaten raw freshly picked from the trees. However, it can be used to make Jellies, pickles or even into wine. These trees can get to real massive while producing on almost every available space. The Jamaican otaheite apple is not frugal it produces in abundance and also the fruits are quite easy to pick from the tree.
    This fast growing tree is very susceptible to high winds making them mercifully hapless against strong hurricane winds. In Jamaica Otaheite apple is known as coco plum or some Ethiopia apple. Coco plum maybe because of its colour and shape and Ethiopia a corruption of Otaheite Apple.
