Ogbono seeds are originated and were first grown in south east Nigeria. The local name for Irvingia with considerable local variation. According to research by Chris Chinaka and J.C. Obiefuna, Ogbono is an indigenous forest tree associated with plants classified as ‘non-timber forest products. It goes by various indigenous names in Nigeria. In the Igbo speaking region it is called ‘ogbono/ugiri’ depending on the variety of Igbo. In Nupe, it is called ‘pekpeara’ , ‘ogwi’ in Bini, ‘uyo’ in Efik and ‘oro’ in Yoruba.
Also known as bush Mango Seeds, this seed is found in the wilds of Africa. The seeds are packed with protein and nutrients and are widely known for it’s health benefits. Our ogbono is deliciously aromatic, adds a thickening consistency and an incredible nutty flavor to rich West African Soups/Stews. Our ogbono is harvested and processed at its peak which leads to a much thicker consistency when used in cooking.
