The fruit can be the terap which is served on its skin. Terap is a fruit made up of small fruitlets and hence a large number of guests can enjoy eating the small fruitlets by plucking them from the core with their hands.
The use of hands (after washing properly ) is polite eating etiquette in the longhouse and every one does it. So just a kind reminder that one should just enjoy using the hand when eating this fruit, and of course durians, chempedak and any cousin of the jackfruit can best be enjoyed by using our hands.
|the fruitlets are like sweet longans. The seeds can be fried and eaten like nuts.|
Its scientific name is Artocarpus odoratissimus.
|Soup of Terap - a healthy fibrous soup.|
And we therefore must never waste what God has given us.
Give praise and enjoy God's feast at the table.
