I have heard so much about this fruit that is native only to Borneo. They all told me terap/tarap tasted like cempedak, but better, with stronger smell/aroma.
More info about terap / tarap can be found here.
So before I went on a trip to Tawau, Sabah, I asked around a little bit and with the help from a friend, Andy Pang, we finally managed to have a taste of this wonderful fruit!
This is what it looks like
Now for some sense of scale
Really easy to open too with just bare hand, like this:
This is what it looks like on the inside
They were right when they said that it smelled like cempedak but much stronger and looked like cempedak but paler.
I liked it. I know when I go to Borneo again, I will try to find this fruit again, and other wonderful wild durians like izu, sukang, bungkak etc, and bambangan too. Well, anything new is good. Not just the fruits, but all other food as well, like hinava, bosou etc.
