This is the flower of the snot apple or Uxakuxaku. http://www.zimbabweflora.co.zw/speciesdata/species.php?species_id=139720
Its like chewing gum. Its eaten when its dry and has split and sort of oozed out of the cracks. And you chew and chew and chew! I think its an acquired taste! You can’t eat Uxakuxaku politely or with your mouth closed!
In this pic you can sort of see the hairy fruit developing. I took these pics in January, in Filabusi.
And they look like this by July! I took this photo at Khami Ruins
