Udara fruit, (scientifically known as Chrysophyllum albidum, commonly known as white star apple) is a forest fruit tree described by the Scottish botanist George Don. It is commonly found throughout tropical Africa. Amongst the Yoruba tribes of Nigeria, it is called Agbalumo while called Udala in the eastern and southern parts of Nigeria. It is closely related to the African star apple (Chrysophyllum africanum) which is also common throughout West Africa.

Some schools of thought feel that they may just be a variety of the same species. Also in the family is the (purple) star apple (Chrysophyllum cainito). The Chrysophyllum genus of plants consists of almost 80 different species of fruits all exclusively grown within the tropical region. African star apple (Udara) is a very popular fruit here in Nigeria. Its fleshy pulp is often eaten as a snack and it is equally common in both the urban and rural areas, particularly around Southern Nigeria. The African star apple is more commonly known as Agbalumo in Yoruba and Udara in Igbo. Just like every other fruit offered by nature, it has some wonderful health benefits.

Plant dullness or leaf drop due to transit

Occasionally, plants may experience a temporary dullness or leaf drop during transportation due to factors such as insufficient sunlight and water.

Kindly follow our plant care instructions and closely monitor its condition for the next 15-20 days. This period will allow the plant to rejuvenate and regain its strength, returning to a healthy state.

Right time to re-plant after delivery

Immediate repotting or re-planting of delivered plants can induce stress on them.

We recommend maintaining the plants in the original bag upon receipt and consistently watering them for the initial two weeks. Additionally, place the plants in an area with 50% sunlight during this period. After the plants have acclimated to your climate and achieved stability, you may proceed to repot them into larger containers or directly into the field.
