    Thanks Zainal. Now I remember having seen this tree, but our guides told us it doesn't taste good because it is very .'kelat'.

    It is a big tree with large leaves, Yew. I'll post a photo I just took but it is still in my digicam and I haven't uploaded it to my laptop yet. What does "kelat" mean? Filipinos find the mild, sweet taste very appealing and it quickly sells out especially when in season and the marang and every other fruit becomes very cheap. Zainal is right, it does grow in the jungle. It is a native of our mountains and unlike the durian, rambutan, mangosteen, or lanzones, the marang has not been hybridized because I don't see any new strains or varieties of this fruit. There aren't any marang orchards either. They just grow wherever they grow.

    You can find this fresh jack fruit or even fresh durian in Vietnamese grocery.i always saw they sale in half cut or the whole fruit.

    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!
    That product are from Thailand.we preserved the fruits by take out the seeds ,fill up with syrup.you can eat with crush ice for dessert.durian chip also another product that came out after that.no smell at all,the test is like French fried

    @ Angel: it is very difficult to find the English equivalent of "kelat" . In our Chinese Hokkien dialect it's "siap" . The nearest English equivalent is ' astringent' as in very young unripe fruit especially of very young unripe bananas. I'm sure you have an equivalent in Tagalog.

    Not really the flesh really very sweet is not "kelat" at all but I dont like the taste very odd I tried before when I saw monkeys and squirrels fight for the fruits in the jungle I just took from the forest floor and opened up the flesh something like white and creamy in color. I believe if the animals can eat this fruits meaning I can try too.he.he.he

    If It isnot kelat I'll try it next time . My jungle sifu taught me that if monkeys and squirrels eat the fruit it is safe for human consumption but if only birds eat it but not the 2 former animals then it is most probably poisonous to humans.

    Now you mention unripe bananas, I think the Tagalog equivalent would be "mapakla" and in Visayan "aplod". Yew Sung it is not at all like that. It is simply sweet, and with the right degree of ripeness, very sweet indeed. I haven't tried one that is unripe. Perhaps it would taste "mapakla".

    Oh Zainal, too bad you don't like it. But that's good for me because I will eat your share too. LOL
    Over here, it is even more popular than the durian though more Filipinos would readily recognize a durian whereas many living outside of Mindanao have not seen a marang yet. I know of many Filipinos who can't stand the smell of durian and therefore they don't like to taste the fruit. But I have never met a Filipino who doesn't like the marang. Practically everybody eats it.
