The African native Mundalama or Mungongo tree produces an egg-shaped fuzzy fruit in parts of Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe between March and May. The Schinziophyton rautanenii or Mungongo tree is important to sub-Saharan Africa due to its extreme drought tolerance once established.

Some believe it is not the fruit, but the Mungongo tree’s seed that it is valued.  Mungongo tree’s fruit seed does produce rich edible and therapeutic oil.  However, the fruit is used in all manner of African cooking from soup and stews, sweet porridge, dips, and relishes.  

The fruit tastes like plum and can be eaten fresh, dried or cooked. Mungongo fruit sweet porridge cereal is an inexpensive and delicious African breakfast meal to make.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
