I had not heard of 'amarrenta', new word to me then.
For the time being (in want of a better word or expression), the closest expression I can offer to you is, ''a fruit that tastes funny'' or a fruit that tastes acid or citric".
Even so, this don´t translate the taste somebody feels when first time in life, sanks his teeth in a not tottally developed cashew or in tamarine.
If one word would describe it, perhaps it´s 'that tastes sour?' 'bitter?' 'tangy'
'Sour' 'tangy' defintion dictionary is close to what I thought about it, see:
Having a sharp acid taste that stings your tongue, like the taste of a lemon: "Sour, tangy apples." "Springle a little sugar over the strawberries if they are sour.
But, then. My vocabulary is small, still building up. Let´s wait the people on the know.
And thanks for bringing us the 'marrenta'.
