Anisophyllea laurina.

Botanical name:

Anisophyllea laurina R. Br. Rhizophoreae/Anisophylleaceae. Monkey Apple.

African tropics. The fruit is sold in the markets of Sierra Leone in the months of April and May; it is described by Don as being superior to any other which is tasted in Africa. It is of the size and shape of a pigeon's egg, red on the sunned side, yellow on the other, its flavor being something between that of the nectarine and a plum.


Sturtevant's Edible Plants of the World, 1919, was edited by U. P. Hedrick.
