Mobola plum is another fruit native to South Africa. It grows in the wild, mainly in the provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo. It ripens from October to January. In season, it may be eaten raw, made into juice, or its pulp can be served as a sauce on porridge. Dried fruit may be enjoyed out of season. Locals also use the Mobola plum in beer brewing. Moreover, its oil-enriched nuts are also edible and mobola oil is great for cooking.
