Default Spondias mombin

Anyone growing this in South Florida. My friend gave my cut tings a few years ago it is a big tree now


S. America - Paraguay, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Surinam; C. America - Panama to Mexico.

Occurs in a great variety of humid tropical climates, often in secondary vegetation derived from evergreen lowland forest or semi-deciduous forest[303
Fruit - raw or cooked. Pleasantly acid, the fleshy fruit is eaten raw or cooked with sugar[301
]. It is also used for making jams, ice cream etc[301
]. Juices improve with keeping overnight as the mild astringency of the fresh fruit disappears[303
]. Unripe fruits are pickled and used like olives[301
]. The dull light orange to yellow or brown ovoid fruit is 30 - 40mm long and 20 - 25mm in diameter[303
There is great variation in fruit quality from region to region, some being sweet and pleasant and others quite disagreeable in flavour[303

Young leaves - cooked and used as a vegetable[301
]. The shoot tastes like cassava and can be eaten raw or boiled[303

The seeds can be eaten[303

When fresh water is unavailable, water from the roots of this tree can be drunk[303
The sap from the roots has been drunk in place of water when the latter was not available[303
