Wood Apple (Feronia limonia) Fruiting on the treeBy A. J. T. Johnsingh, WWF-India and NCF CC BY-SA 4.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Feronia limonia

A large tree with long leaves, a hard berry fruit and an inner sticky brown pulp. Though the rind of the wood apple fruit is so hard that it has to be cracked with a hammer, the sticky pulp is edible and used to make syrups, drinks, jelly, and jams. 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.

Comments: -

Absolutely love this fruit. Love eating it and making it into a drink.

I am hoping I can get it to grow down here in Melbourne. Let's see how it survives winter.

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Question: Again, another one I don't water often. I doesn't seem to like being too wet. Prefers it drier and lots of sun. I am finding it often loses its leaves and grows new ones. I hope it can last the winter, if it does I'll plant it in the ground this spring.
