Seeking information about ALLANSA fruit/tree

Seeking information about ALLANSA fruit/tree

Postby Admin on Mon Jun 15, 2009 8:31 pm

We often receive e-mail asking questions related to the Ga language and the Ga people. Here's one about a fruit called allansa.

*****

There is a fruit which the Ga people of Accra call allansa (or alansa) which is sold in the markets. It is said to come from a tree found in the forest region of Ghana. The fruit is about the size of a guava, with orange skin, which when peeled away reveals four or five segments of thick reddish flesh each containing one or more shiny dark brown seeds looking very similar to soursop seeds.

Does anyone know the scientific name or other common name of this fruit/tree, or whether it has any other local Ghanaian name? The name allansa might be Ga, or it might come from another Ghanaian or West African language.
