Lansium duranum (Lanzones)


Agriculturally, the tree is grown throughout the entire Southeast Asian region, ranging from Southern India to the Philippines for its fruit. In the Philippines, it is locally referred to as the lanzones. Lanzones fruits are ovoid, roundish orbs around five centimeters in diameter, usually found in clusters of two to thirty fruits along the branches and trunk. Each round fruit is covered by yellowish, thick, leathery skin. Underneath the skin, the fruit is divided into five or six slices of translucent, juicy flesh. The flesh is slightly acidic in taste, although ripe specimens are sweeter. Green seeds are present in around half of the segments, usually taking up a small portion of the segment although some seeds take up the entire segment's volume. The sweet juicy flesh contains sucrose, fructose, and glucose.

Oh, how I miss this...
