* Not a widely seen or known fruit in the Philippines.
Rattan fruit in the central (sort of northern) part of Luzon. It’s called kayapi in the Visayan areas.

Known for being very sour, alimuran fruit is usually eaten with salt or pickled for consumption.
The pangolin-like skin peel is very distinctive.
