The late Bill Whitman, world-renowned tropical fruit expert, reckoned that the unique fruits of Willughbeia were among the finest in the world. However, these spectacular fruits are little known. Even though preliminary agricultural trials have indicated that it is a commercially viable crop, they are only harvested in the forests on occasion and offered in local markets in Borneo. They are the fruit of a robust liana that climbs large trees in the forest for support. The edible portion is the abundant pulp that surrounds the seeds and tastes like orange sherbet.
