In fact, the names may originate in any language but Greek and Latin are the most common ones. Conversely, in the name Acacia albida, the genus name Acacia ends in ‘a’ showing that it is feminine (cf: formula & alga with formulae & algae).

Both have soft, white, milky, sweet pulp surrounding the 6 to 11 gelatinous, somewhat rubbery, seed cells in the center which, when cut through transversely, are seen to radiate from the central core like an asterisk or many-pointed star, giving the fruit its common English name. Tread carefully! This research work was undertaken to determine the physicochemical parameters of oil from the seeds of African Star Apple (Chrysophyllum albidum) and further evaluate the adsorptive properties of the fruit shell.The oil was extracted using hexane with the soxhlet apparatus at a temperature of 65°C for 4 hours. During the first 6 months, the young trees should be watered weekly. Grammar zone! Abstract The viscosity, shear stress and shear rate of African star apple juice (Chrysophyllum albidium) at different concentrations of 8 % to 32% total solid concentration and temperature range of 20°C to 70°C were obtained in order to determine the effect of changes in concentration and temperature on the rheological properties of the juice. 2. In consequence, the specific epithet must be inflected to reflect the neutrality of the genus name; hence, the ending ‘um’ as seen in albidum. Seeds germinate 4–6 wk after sowing. Later irrigation may be infrequent except during the flowering season when watering will increase fruit-set. 1 Information 2 Appearance 3 History 3.1 The Ukumbusho Tradition 3.2 Timon and Pumbaa's Christmas 3.3 The Scorpion's Sting 3.4 Little Old Ginterbong African tar apples are used as a food source, as well as to create paint with. Typical of most endospermic seeds, African star apple seeds produce long hypocotyl hooks which eventually straighten up sending the cotyledons into the air. Otherwise the fruits will be gummy, astringent and inedible. Keywords: African star apple seeds, Nutritional quality, Antioxidant, Anti-diabetic potentials It was formerly proposed as a substitute for wax on the shelves of wardrobes and closets. The fruit, a true berry, contains five flat or bean-shaped seeds enclosed in shiny, brown testae (/testii/ = seedcoats). It has scientific name Chrysophyllum aibidum. APPLE MUSIC. Ripe fruits remain in good condition for 3 weeks at 37.4º to 42.8º F (3º-6º C) and 90% relative humidity. ‘Adasima’ is reportedly the name given to this fruit by the Fantes or the Akans in general. Furthermore, african star apple content tannis, flavonoids, terpenoids, proteins, carbohydates and resin.
