If there is one fruit that I miss the most and is not available here where I live it’s lanzones (lansium domesticum or langsat in Malay). The sweet translucent meat is so good. Like most fruits the seed is very bitter. But if the fruit is small enough the seed will be soft and chewy and not bitter. So as a little kid I made a game of trying to find the right size where you can still eat the seeds and not have to spit it out but big enough that you have a lot of meat. I could eat several kilos of these. They’re so good and right about now i’m truly missing them. This is certainly one of my favorite fruits. I think it has an excellent flavor and texture. What fruit from your childhood that comes to mind right now?
Why can’t this be found here in NYC? is there some sort of ban? If anybody knows please let me know.
