Fruits Of The Forest.

I’ve come across a few fruits in Sierra Leone that I haven’t seen anywhere else.  One such fruit is the bush plum.

They look like miniature cantaloupes on the outside and once the skin is peeled away reveal a pinkish flesh with a large stone in the middle.  They are sweet when they are ripe but don’t yield much to eat.

Some local children had been out picking and were kind enough to give us a few.
