A pulantan tree in the rainforest, laden with ripe fruits truly is a sight to behold. The large fruits reach up to 20 cm (8 in.) in length and are densely covered with long, fleshy tubercles. The fruit is mandarin orange in color on the exterior. The fleshy arils found inside are very sweet and agreeable. The seeds can also eaten, best dried, roasted or fried. Outside of it’s native range on Borneo, Sulawesi and the Philippines, where it is also called terap bulu or pedalai, it is virtually unknown. A true king of the jungle, it is best suited for cultivation as a wonderful, fruit bearing shade tree in the humid hot tropics.
