Dr Mondoa,

Dacryodes edulis is among a few other crop plants very high in human nutrition as well as lifestock feed values that are grown in other tropical and subtropical areas of the world. They are included in my Agriculture & Rural Development blue print (in preparation)for the British Southern Cameroon Restoration Government (BSCRG). Your posting sheds more nutritional light on our 'plum ' and I hope that our people can include it as a regular item in their diet. In fact I am proposing that the crop, in a free Southern Cameroons, be commercialised along with the others for the dual purposes of internal consumption as well as for export for much needed foreign exchange. Thanks for the information.

Dacryodes edulis, New word..... Like eating plum fruits. Heard that it,s good for the eyes. Havenot tasted it for ages.


I tried this "plum" while on the road to Bamenda. Little kids sell them at the bus stops. Expecting the taste of a plum, I was surprised at is odd flavor and buttery texture. After some getting used to, I found them most satisfying.

Don't forget, the back produces a latex solution that burns with a very good fragrance. The same product is used by palm wine tappers who still use calabashes to seal brocken wine containers. Its leaves do not carry oil as do those of Eucalyptus trees, as such are very bio-degradable and helps in soil fertility.


Not until you taste Dacryodes edulis when it is prepared by Dry-frying; i.e using vapour by sprinkling water from time-to-time in a heated pot, then would you say you enjoy it. Come and see how the Citizens eat it raw like Cola nuts. So appetizing.

In fact,your articles are good,and if you have some time to rest,pls have a look at my article to link my website,and then perhaps we will take a special relation each other.


Tried one time to bring it back to the US from the jungle, but the airport people confiscated my plum and ordered me to stick to the burgers... Now, 50 pounds later, I'm thinking, maybe I should I have turned around and gone back to the jungle. :)

I have tried this delicious fruit while I was in
Cameroon. I so crave it but doubt it is available in
Canada ? Anyone know if this African plum is imported?

Eben Tanwani

I am glad to see people with my kind of ideas.

We need to domesticate that plant, determine its agronomic practices and rapidly produce it first for the actual enjoyment of our people and the rest can be exported.

But some research needs to be done.

Eben Tanwani

I am open to work with whoever is interested to realize the goal ....... improving on the productivity of plums in Ambazonia.

I am an Agronomist with several years of field experience in Nigeria and Cameroon.
