Buah Tarap

The fruit season is just about to come and this one I think is the starter. I guess most of you have not seen such fruit. It's very popular and widely grown in the Borneo Island. Locally it is called 'buah tarap'. It is spiky but not sharp. The inside pulp is .......mmmm......so sweet..so luscious...and so tempting. But tarap has such a strong scent which means nobody can hide this fruit if it's already ripe hehheee.......and I can eat up a whole fruit if the size is medium ;). But what I like is to turn it into 'cucur' as shown below.
But I really wonder..what do you call this fruit if it can be found in your place?

MeRy ~ dear it is not cempedak. We have cempedak here too. Yea, most of the tropical fruits are heaty ya..we have to drink lotsa water to cool down.

We called it cempedak. It is very sweet and its not easy to swallow at one time right? Always stucked inside the throat.

But I wonder why yours one is in white colour?

Many West Malaysians THINK it's "cempedak" - U R DEAD WRONG! Tarap is tarap. the skin & flesh r SO different!

u can peel the skin off tarap. U cant do tat to cempedak.

Cempedak has lotsa fibre & hard to swallow. Tarap is soft.

Tarap's seed is small, compared to cempedak.

Dont ever assume TARAP is "cempedak"
