This is a Gabonese fruit tree. Not photos yet. I’ll take some as soon as I get a chance. The painting below is by Katherine Abernathy.
Spent time in the peace corps over in Gabon. This looks a lot like one of the fruits that would be available on the market – “etangas” (spelling unknown). You would boil the purple fruit until they floated. The inside flesh was the color of an avocado. Eat them with salt and a cold beer. Anybody have any better information on this fruit? I would like to find it in the US.
