I am trying to describe to my colleague a wonderful berry/fruit we have in Nigeria.
thanks is sometimes sour (if unripe) and sweet(if ripe and dark inside)...and sometimes comes with maggots (but that is Ok, just take off the maggots and lick the soft-pulp covered seeds)....but I got no name to describe...
So, what do you call udara/udala/agbalumo is English please.

Thank you

I was checking on the internet, and someone said it is called 'White Star Apple'....is it true?

My dear, just tell your friend that there are certain things in Africa that don't translate to english and this is one of them.
just like akara, how do you describe it? fried ground beans?

just tell your friend that it is called udara, show a picture and call it a day.

bigmomma taught uk's godmother "waka" and 'shege' and i didn't know how to translate it when she told me waka and shege and burst out laughing at the look on my face.

so? No English name for real?

Ok, so, what is the botanical name that is accepted world wide?
