Marang

Marang is a native tree of Borneo and the Palawan and Mindanao islands, and is similar to the bread tree. An evergreen plant, it grows to 25 meters and has round fruits, which become yellow-green when ripe and are covered with thorns. The scent is very intense, the skin is thick and the flesh is juicy and creamy. The taste is sweet and the seeds, if roasted, are eaten too. Once the fruit is opened, it must be eaten quickly, within a few hours, as otherwise its typical taste disappears and it oxidizes.
