Pangium edule




Pangium edule, locally known as buah kepayang. The fruits are poisonous as they contain hydrocyanic acids. But look at the fruits in this photo...




I wonder what could have eaten them? squirrels? bats?




Kepayang is a tall tree that can reach about 30 or more meters high. The fruiting tree in the above photos is about 35-40 meters by my estimate. Even though the fruits and seeds are poisonous, when prepared properly, the seeds are actually quite tasty. See my old blog entry here:
