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.
