Anyone know the food value status of this fruit?

Unlisted foods are considered neutral unless/until there is reason to think otherwise.

There is no way to even try to make an educated guess on this one. Neutral it is.

Somewhat similar as both fruit trees are uedicots, but then they fall into different orders. I was just kind of curious as I recently tasted the dried pulp of the baobab fruit, and I liked the flavor. I'll just make do with the fruits about which I'm sure. It's not as though I'm fruit deprived. (:

You're right! ... why some call it "gallinas de palo." Ha! So many people (north of Ciudad de Tijuana) refuse to believe me that it really is tasty. I especially like it when prepared with chipotles en adobo. Mmm, mmm, good! ((:

Yes, I've eaten (and enjoyed). (:

Unfortunately, at least as far as this dish is concerned, all oranges, black pepper, most roes and corn/maize are avoids for me (not even 'black dot' avoids). I can't even tell you how hard it was to give up hot, fresh corn tortillas ... especially as this was our standard 'bread' fare during meals growing up. ):

I did it, though, and have been tortilla-free for 13 months. Couple of times I was really tempted and thought I'd have to go into rehab. (I mean, I figured there'd at least be some sort of 12-step program, but no! Can you believe it?!?)
