    Thank you all for the very informative and interesting exchange of ideas here.

    Cattan, the nangka tanah occurs in the Philippines too but I've never seen the live tree. My aunt who used to work with the Department of Agriculture was the one who first told me about it. You are right, there is quite a number of local langka varieties, some so yellow, some pale but still sweet, some fruits are so large, others are more modest in size.

    Shiram and Lijun, we cook unripe langka as viand, often in coconut milk with fish or meat, sometimes in broth, and sometimes in salads. the "ginataan" Cattan was referring to is a stand-alone snack, or dessert, best eaten on cold, rainy days. It uses ripe langka.

    Now the marang (Artocarpus odoratissimus) is in season here and they are all over the city, sold in stalls and sidewalks everywhere. I am so sure you have this in your countries too. Both the durian and the marang only occurs naturally on Mindanao island and my province has many of these.

    We may live in different countries and call our recipes by different names. But now I am learning from you guys that many of these are similar. We are all Southeast Asian after all. We are so blessed to have all these natural wealth other people could just dream of.

    I looked up "cempedak", Yew. They are related but quite different. The marang is never cooked. We always eat it fresh. It is very sweet.
    Furthermore, the marang is round, unlike the cempedak which looks elongated.

    for me, these are basically things i have only seen on tv documentaries about asia. they seem legendary. i know a thai market that has durian products, and sometimes a whole frozen durian, but i have never smelled the raw smell. the whole durians are huge, and spikey looking. i have tried fried durian chips, they were nice, too crunchy, but fun to try. i would love to try some of these fresh though.... i had a can of jackfruit once, but a neighbor begged to give it to her mom, so i gave it to her. it must be strange to move here and not be able to find the foods you were used to... i should stop into that thai market again...

    That was nice of you to give it to your neighbor. I never knew there was canned jackfruit or that there are durian chips.

    It's so difficult to describe the smell of durian. You either love it or hate it, no sitting on the fence for that super strong and permeating odor. There are quite a number of durian varieties now and not all of them are big. A number of hybrids are not as thorny as the original species and are much easier to handle when trying to open the fruit. Opening a durian takes skill too. And only a few people know how to do it properly. I love the fruit so much so I learned how to open one at a young age.

    In the Philippines, the durian bears fruit only on the island of Mindanao where I live. Lucky me!

    Cattan, here is the marang. It is in season now and it is all over the place. It has a peculiar smell, just like the durian and langka have their own strong odors.

    It's sweet Yew, and is a very popular fruit here. It's never been hybridized as far as I know of, unlike the durian. And it doesn't occur in Luzon or the Visayas, just here in Mindanao particularly in the central and southern parts.

    I think you saw a lots in the jungle I just remembered we called it " Pokok Terap" where the resin we use to catch the birds and as far as I'm concern the fruits so sweet white but very weird none of our villagers here (Melaka) like it I tried after after I saw monkeys ate the fruits he he.
