Description

A large tree with long leaves, a hard berry fruit and an inner sticky brown pulp.

Other useful parts of the plant are the roots, fruits, and leaves of this tree that are used for medicinal purposes. Wood apple fruit can be eaten plain or made into jams and sweets. In Indonesia, wood apple is mixed with honey and eaten for breakfast. In Thailand, they eat the leaves in salads while in India the pulp is used in savory chutneys.
