Ivory is named for its resemblance to a young elephant's tusk due to its long, thin shape. It was first introduced into Yunnan, China from Thailand in 1914. The actual tree that was the first to be imported still grows, and during one year produced almost 500 kg of fruit.
The fruit has thin skin, smooth skin. The flesh contains very few fibres, and constitutes approximately 82 percent of the fruit.
