The pulp from the fruit of the baoabab makes a really refreshing drink. Extract the white almost powdery pulp from the fruit and mix with milk. Has a tartaric taste but is quite refreshing.

The fruits of the Grewia species (the brandy bushes) is quite sweet to suck on. Make sure you pick them when ripe. Unfortunately not much pulp.

The fruits of the jacket plum are quite delicious.

Num num and Kei apple fruit, if I can get to them before the birds do in my garden lol.
Fruit from the cross berry shrub is not to bad either, apparently it can be used to boil up some sort of milk shake when added to milk.

I once "ate" a low branch whilst jogging to the camp fire one dark evening in the middle of balule camp, I am not sure/can't remeber/did not know what specie of fauna the tree is though so can not add it to the list yet.
Who on earth puts branches at face level, I mean really.
