BOBO WHO DOESN ‘ T EAT IT… THE ′′ MAMONCILLO ′′ ARRIVES History of history The mammoncillo, Melicoccus bijugatus, originates from tropical regions of America, specifically Colombia, Venezuela and Margarita Island. It’s seasonal fruit and ripe in dry or summer times. It is grouped into large bunches, compact and heavy. Dumb assholes are green and rounded with a little prominence at the tip. The shell is smooth, thin and fragile, which due to its hardness keeps them fresh for a long time and allows them to be transported to the markets. They are appreciated as edible fruit. Its pulp is bright salmon, ivory or yellowish, translucent, gelatinous, and very juicy but scarce, which usually clings tenaciously to seed. When they’re ripe, they can be from very sweet to clearly acid. Cheers It is rich in vitamin A and C as well as amino acids, minerals, and unsaturated fatty acids, fiber, calcium, phosphorus, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins B12, tannins, tryptophan and lysine. It is generally a fairly food fruit and with high nutritious value. Because of its very high vitamin A and C content, it is adequate support for sight care and development and promotes activation of the immune system, important to women in gestation, as well as preventing, among other things, the proliferation of infections. It is also noted for its high presence of minerals, including calcium, phosphorus and iron. Studies have been published indicating its effectiveness to help control the spread of cancer cells and protect the organism from harmful effects of tobacco. It is a specially indicated fruit in cases of arterial hypertension due to its low sodium content and high potassium, with both purative and diuretic power. It’s beneficial for deflaming bladder and kidney infections. Because of its astringent effect it is useful when it comes to fighting diarrhea and is very digestive. Some people even cause laxative effect. Anyway, it’s a fruit with a lot of nutritional elements and properties. It’s quite complete and perfect for the entire family’s consumption. High nutritional level improves the quality of life and should therefore be included in the usual diet. CONSUME MAMONCILLES, BUT BE CAREFUL As the seeds are coated with pulp they are very slippery. With accidental ingestion of some of them, and due to their size, they can stay on the upper airway, causing suffocation. That’s why care should be taken when consuming fresh fruit, especially with children. To eat it directly, only the crust is itchy with teeth in the top half, which is discarded. Then slides the inside of the fruit into the mouth, squeezing with his fingers the bottom half of the crust, sucks the juice and pulp until nothing remains of it, and then the seed cleansed thus is ejected from the mouth. USE OF THE MAMONCLE Soft pulp can be separated from seed by simple macerate and agitation in water providing an excellent foundation for the preparation of cold, nutritious and natural soda. The primary use of dumbasses, as well as consuming fresh, is preserved and canned. In other countries where there is greater predilection for mammoncillo, it is found in jam, refreshing canned drinks and preserved syrup. ·
