The yellow hog plum or yellow mombin originates from the tropical Americas and the West Indies.
Pulp of the yellow mombin fruit can be eaten fresh, or is used to make juice or jellies. In Thailand the fruit is sometimes used as an ingredient in ‘Som tam’ recipes. Som tam is a spicy salad.
Yellow mombin can be propagated by seeds and cuttings.
