Description: Native to the tropical Americas, Hog plum (Spondias Mombin) is an ornamental tree of the cashew family (Anacardiaceae) and has naturalized in many parts of Africa and southeast Asia. The hog plum and several other species of the genus Spondias are cultivated for their edible plum-like fruits. The young leaves can also be eaten, and various parts of the plant are used in traditional medicine. The trees have deeply fissured bark and goes dormant in the winter, dropping all of their leaves. As spring breaks, the trees start to flower, with fruit following in 45-60 days. The fruit and flower of the hog plum occur right on the branches as opposed to hanging from the tips. The drupe fruits are about 4 cm (1.6 inches) in length and have a leathery skin.
