GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Spondias dulcis, known commonly as ambarella in Sri Lanka or June plum, is an equatorial or tropical tree, with edible fruit containing a fibrous pit.
  • Among various colloquial names are Otaheite apple, Tahitian quince, Polynesian plum, Jew plum, and golden apple.
  • In Malaya it is called great hog plum or Kedondong; in Indonesia, Kedongdong; in Thailand, ma-kok-farang; in Cambodia, mokak; in Vietnam, coc, pomme cythere or Pommier de cythere.
  • In Costa Rica, it is known as juplón; in Colombia, hobo de racimos; in Venezuela, jobo de la India, jobo de Indio, or mango jobo; in Ecuador, manzana de oro; in Brazil, caja-manga.
  • While still green and hard, the fruits fall to the ground, a few at a time, over a period of several weeks.
  • As they ripen, the skin and flesh turn golden-yellow.
  • While the fruit is still firm, the flesh is crisp, juicy and subacid, and has a somewhat pineapple-like fragrance and flavor.
  • If allowed to soften, the aroma and flavor become musky and the flesh difficult to slice because of conspicuous and tough fibers extending from the rough ridges of the 5-celled, woody core containing 1 to 5 flat seeds.
  • Some fruits in the South Sea Islands weigh over 1 lb (0.45 kg) each.
