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!
