Edible Plant Species

 
     
 
Ximenia americana Linn. Olacaceae. HOG PLUM. SEASIDE PLUM.
Cosmopolitan tropics.
The fruits resemble yellow plums, are edible and of an agreeable taste. They have an acid-sweet, aromatic taste, with some degree of austerity. The plant bears round, orange-colored fruits, of which the natives of the Fiji and other islands of the Pacific Ocean are very fond, though they are rather tart. Before they are ripe they possess a powerful odor of essential oil of almonds. In the Circars, its yellow fruit, which is about the size of a pigeon's egg, is eaten by the natives.
