Rare Fruit


Has anyone seen this ?...tasted it ?...know what is this called ?

I had this when I was a kid, you can only find this during the "Durian season" and as far as I had xplored, this fruit was found in Balik Pulau, Penang. But now, no sign of it and I am capturing this fruit as one of the rare fruit,...near extinction. 



Till now, I don't even know what's the actual name of this fruit ! In Penang they called it "Buah Bus Stand"(IN HOKKIEN) as in..."bus stop" (TRANSLATE TO ENGLISH) 

Check it out further,...if anyone know this, please enlighten me !


   
Size similar to a mangoesteen.



When you sliced off the skin, it looks like this....



Cut into half this is what you get....



Discard the seed and cut it into chunks....erh, how to eat it ? 

You will be surprise...



Take 3 of this fruit, mix - 2tbsp Dark Soy Sauce, 1tbsp Sugar, 1tbsp Light Soy Sauce and 1tbsp of Sambal Belachan...this is how we eat it

Damn,..shio

The fruit itself merely taste sour just like a green raw mango.

How to get hold of this precious

looks like duku langsat,
naked like coconut,
pink seeds like lady's lips,
cut pieces like mushrooms,
tastes like raw mango

We want 2

TQ

Ate this when I went back to grandma's place in rifle range, she had a tree growing this and another buah nam nam (kidney shaped, slightly furry and vermilion when ripe)...

It's rare and we hardly can find this anymore, if you like sour taste then it should taste good to you...
