Parinari nonda (Nonda Plum) (Chrysobalanaceae)

Parinari nonda (Nonda Plum)

I saw this interesting savanna tree before I knew of its significance as a bush food. Now I’d like to try it. More on this when I get a bite of it.

About David Tng

I am David Tng, a hedonistic botanizer who pursues plants with a fervour. I chase the opportunity to delve into various aspects of the study of plants. I have spent untold hours staring at mosses and allied plants, taking picture of pollen, culturing orchids in clean cabinets, counting tree rings, monitoring plant flowering times, etc. I am currently engrossed in the study of plant ecology (a grand excuse to see 'anything I can). Sometimes I think of myself as a shadow taxonomist, a sentimental ecologist, and a spiritual environmentalist - but at the very root of it all, a "plant whisperer"!

    Dear David

    I am involved in producing a database of useful tropical plants, all the information from which is made freely available on the internet – see

    The database contains information on just over 10,000 species of plants at the moment, and we are currently obtaining photographs for as many of these species as possible.

    I wonder if it would be possible to use some of the images from your web site. Our project is completely educational and not for profit. We would also clearly credit the images with details of their copyright and a link back to the author, or to your site as required.

    I hope this will be acceptable.

    Many thanks

    Ken Fern

      Hi Ken,

      Great work on the useful plant database!
      You can certainly use images. I’d be happy if you credit the images and link back to the site, or specific page.
