Marula

Marula (Marula, Sclerocarya birrea) – except in Africa, in the south and west of the continent, you will not meet this tree. It is almost impossible to buy fruits outside the black continent, as mature fruits very quickly begin to roam inside, so that by eating overripe fruits you can easily get a little intoxication.

The oblong fruits are covered with a thin yellow peel, and under it there is a white, juicy, tart pulp and one bone. Despite the astringency of taste, marula is quite an edible fruit, but more often it is made of various desserts and branded African liqueur “Amarula”. And from the peel, a drink is made that resembles tea, but with an unusual taste.

Fruits appear twice a year, in March-April and in September-October. Due to its rich composition with a lot of vitamins (especially a lot of vitamin C) and minerals, Marula is very good for a general strengthening effect on the body, it perfectly removes heavy metal salts and metabolic products. Marula is also suitable for the prevention and treatment of diseases of such body systems as cardiovascular, nervous and genitourinary.
