African Bush Mango Seed
popularly known as Ogbono has its botanical name as Irvingia gabonensis and is
also called wild African mango or bush mango. The Igbo people of Nigeria call it
Ogbono which is called "Apon”
by the Yoruba people of Nigeria
is indigenous to the humid forest zone of northern Angola,
including Congo, DR Congo, Nigeria, Côte
d’Ivoire and south-western Uganda
but is planted in parts of southern Cameroon,
Ghana, Togo and Benin.
The tree which is present in
the tropical wet and dry climate zone grows naturally in canopied jungle,
gallery forests and semi-deciduous forests and produces edible mango-like
fruits,which are specially valued for their fat and protein-rich nuts.
Ogbono - is the seed of a wild
bush mango plant called dika or the African-mango used in preparing a protein
rich delicacy called ogbono soup. The ogbono plant grows freely in the tropical
rain forest of Africa and its fruit is eaten all across this region from Senegal to Nigeria
and Angola to Uganda. Ogbono,
also called ogbolo or etima seed, when ground and combined with vegetables and
spices and cooked with fish and or meat, is used to make the popular ogbono
soup in Nigeria, Ghana, Gabon,
Equatorial Guinea and Sierra Leone.
In Nigeria, the seed is popular for
making soup. Ogbono soup also known as Draw soup because of its slippery nature
helps lumps of solid food slide down the throat to the stomach.
While some people like their
Ogbono soup plain, with no added vegetables, others prefer it with some
vegetable in it. A third group love their Ogbono soup with Okra, while some
people would add Egusi to it.
