Bignay is a fruit tree whose scientific name is Antidesma bunius. It’s been called salamander tree and currant tree in English.
The bignay fruits have been referred to as Queensland cherries, Philippine wild cherries, Philippine blackberries, and perhaps most appropriately tree currants.
The tree is not endemic to the Philippines — it can be found in neighboring countries as well.
