On the other hand, however, I have also read that this should be tested
with young fruits which show typical charcteristic of ovules.
The picture was taken with a ripe fruit. That might be wrong.
This is true, but many other species also have 2 rows of ovules per locule. 'Namwah' is 1/3 acuminata so some traits from wild acuminata still persist. 'Namwah' is also not a species (it is a cultivar) so traits that relate to wild species are not applicable, it is composed of genetic material originally from both M. acuminata and M. balbisiana but is neither and has many of its own mutations which show traits not present in either wild species.
