So, what is elephant apple?

Elephant apple, also known as chalta in Bengali, is a tropical fruit native to Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. This peculiar fruit is roughly the size of a grapefruit and has a greenish-yellow, waxy exterior. Inside, the fruit has a firm and slightly bitter flesh with a mildly sweet taste. Elephant apple is a versatile ingredient used in both sweet and savory dishes, and its leaves and bark are also used in traditional medicine. Due to its high pectin content, elephant apple is also used in jams and jellies. This exotic fruit is a great source of vitamins and minerals, making it a healthy addition to any diet.
