Five eye fruit, wu yan guo

Five Eye Fruit

Choerospondias axillaris (Roxb) Burtt et Hill
SOUR DATE
WU YAN GUO

The five eye fruit, wu yan guo, (five eye fruit), is also called nan suan zao (south sour date), niu yan guo (ox eye fruit) or suan guo (sour fruit).

The tree grows to a height of 5-10 meters. The elliptical fruit is about 30-40mm in length and 20-25mm in diameter. The surface is green in immature fruit and turns yellow when ripe.

 

The skin is flexible and tough and covered with light brown speckles. When the skin has been peeled the paste-like flesh can be seen. This is extremely sour. In the centre is a stone, in one end of which there are 4-5 small holes (hence the name five-eye fruit).

The fruit ripens at the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. The fruit has a sour astringent flavor and is cool in nature.

The fruit invigorates the spleen, strengthens the stomach, alleviates pain and is astringent. It contains organic acid, vitamin C, tannin, etc.
