Irvingia

A species of African and Southeast Asian trees from the Irvingiaceae family. Irvingias are known by the occasional names of wild mango, African mango or bush mango due to their mango-like, fibrous flesh. Irvingias are highly prized for their fatty, protein rich nuts which are dried in the sun for preservation. When ground to paste, the end result is known as dika bread or Gabon chocolate, among others. Sometimes used as thickening agents for soup, or pressed into vegetable oil.
