Nmimi or Mmimi?


Hello World!

The fruit pictured above is called nmimi or mmimi in my native language, igbo. In English it is simply called pepper fruit. Pepper fruits are used as a natural cure for coughs, fevers, and to improve appetite. That explains why I’ve been eating so much lately! lol. I’ve loved pepper fruits since I was a toddler! It’s quite spicy and has a very distinct smell. This fruit is typically found in south-eastern states of Nigeria, but it also eaten in the south-west, and south-south regions.

Whenever you visit Nigeria, you should try pepper fruits!
