Description

Ogbono, botanically known as Irvingia gabonensis, and African mango, bush mango, or dika nut in English, is a multipurpose fruit native to West and Central Africa.
Ogbono fruits are available from May to September, with peak harvesting in June and July. The fruit is oval-shaped and broad, with a thin skin, fleshy pulp when ripe, and a hard, stony nut encasing a soft, oil-rich kernel wrapped inside a brown seed coat.
The kernel, commonly referred to as a seed, is widely eaten and is what we call ogbono or dika nut. These kernels are an essential part of West and Central African diets, providing carbohydrates, fat, and protein. They can be eaten raw, roasted, or ground and cooked with meat, or vegetables.

Ogbono seeds are also nutritious because they are rich in calcium, phosphorus, iron, and zinc. They are also good sources of antioxidants, including polyphenols, carotenoids, and flavonols.

Ogbono is not fattening even though it contains a lot of saturated fat. Ogbono can be part of a healthy diet if you cook it with small or moderate amounts of palm oil, lean meats or fish, and plenty of green leafy vegetables and eat a moderate portion
Ogbono is slimy when cooked because of its high-fat content.
