Duku Langsat


My husband brought this home once , thinking that they were longans, but they were totally differnt kind of fruit. First of all the size of the fruit was bigger


The flesh inside was segmented with plump little segments of flesh. The slightly perfumy flesh is quite sweet, not overly sweet .



The bigger the fruit the sweeter they are. The seed is found usually in the bigger segments and if you accidently bite into it , its quite bitter, so best to avoid munching the seed.

The one thing I dont like is that when you pull the skin apart it releases a sticky substance , making your fingers quite sticky. To open it, just have to squeeze near the base of the cream coloured skin , where the stem used to hold the fruit , and give a gently squeeze with the finger tips and it will open up and you will be able to full apart the skin easily. Make sure you dont eat the bitter seed and the white pith , that holds the segments together, which is also a little bitter.

Have a nice week end!!!
