Favorite thing: Duku is closely related to langsat. First popularly grown in Terengganu, east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
When unripe, it is sappy and sour. When ripe, it is sweeter, tangy and yummy. The skin is slightly thicker than langsat and so suffers less bruising.
Also it is sold loose rather than clustered like langsat. The fruit is bigger and eaten by squeezing the fruit and opening it up. Do not eat the skin and seed. Not all segments have seeds but they are bitter.
There is a hybrid which is called "duku langsat" or "dokong". Generally duku is less common than langsat and more expensive and preferred.
