The Ambarella or Golden apple or Hog plum is a tropical fruit tree with green fruits which eventually may turn to a golden-yellow color. The fruits have orange-yellow flesh surrounding a single spiny seed. The fruits are eaten raw or may be used in sauces or soups or to make jam.
Ambarella is a deciduous tree, which originates from Polynesia and Melanesia. It is now grown as a fruit crop in many tropical and sometimes in subtropical regions.
Note that several related species in the same genus (Spondias spp.) are also known as hog plum or golden apple.
