@ 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.

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.
