Lanzones

One of Hubby’s former university classmate asked for us to buy bauerfeind malleoloc ankle brace for his son. Apparently, his high school boy sprained his ankle during a basketball practice for theirĀ  upcoming school sports clinic.

We brought the brace to their house. Needless to say, the family was extremely grateful we were able to bring home something for their son to help him recuperate. As we were leaving, they handed us a huge bag of lanzones.

Lansium domesticum, also known as langsat or lanzones, is a species of tree in the family Meliaceae. The plant, which originates from western Southeast Asia, bears edible fruit. It is the provincial flower for the Indonesian province of South Sumatra.

We were just about to leave the Philippines and I was ecstatic I get to taste the fruit after six years! We were told, August is the season for lanzones hence supermarket were not yet stocked with the fruit.

We went back to our hotel room where I savored each white-clear skin around the seed.
