Coco Plum


or golden plum (Chrysobalanus icaco), a shrub or small tree (up to 9 m high) of the family Chrysobalanaceae. The fruits are pinkish white, bright red, or almost black in color and tartly sweet and somewhat tangy. Their white flesh grows compactly around an elongated seed; the fruits resemble a large plum.

The coco plum grows wild along the seacoast of tropical America. It is cultivated in the tropics of America and Africa. The fruits are used as food; the flesh as a black dye; an edible oil is obtained from the seeds.
