Imra, hog plum
ma kok (Thai), huah amara (Malay), kedongdong (Indonesian)
(Spondias or Mangifera pinnata — Family Anacardiaceae)
Imra is the fruit of a tropical tree which grows in the American tropics and Southeast Asia.
Related to the mombin, it is considered an inferior species.
The fruits are sour and have a disagreeable smell, but can be used for pickling. The tree is cultivated in Malaysia for this purpose.
In Indonesia, the fruits are occasionally cooked in Rujak (a spicy fruit salad); but, when a choice is available, the ambarella is preferred over the imra.
