This fruit must be totally ripe to be eaten otherwise it’s toxic. But don’t let that stop you because this fruit is really tasty!

And Monstera Deliciosa Fruit is loaded with lots of Vitamin C.
In fact it contains 60 mg per 100 grams of fruit, more than 22 grams of protein, lots of good carbs, some B Vitamins, almost no fat, calcium, and phosphorus.
Monstera Deliciosa Fruit is full of large amounts of Vitamin C, which is a great antioxidant that keeps away disease.

And some say it’s great for those recovering from radiotherapy.
