We all know that, this is the time of the year when the market is flooded with African cherry, also known as agbalumo in Yoruba and udara in Igbo. The Sapotaceae family includes Chrysophyllum albidum, also known as African cherry or white star apple. The African cherry whose botanical name is Prunus africana, has a wide distribution in Africa, occurring in montane regions of central and southern Africa and on the islands of Bioko, São-Tomé, Grande Comore, and Madagascar. It can be found at 900–3,400 m (3,000–10,000 ft) above sea level. It is a canopy tree 30–40 m in height, and is the tallest member of Prunus. See more details below.
