Img.252 from Tropical fruits (#G3)

Img.252 (#G3): There is a whole family of similar fruits, each of which, however, has a slightly different flavor. This family includes the "duku", "dukong", and "duku-langsat" fruits. The "duku" fruit looks almost identical to the "langsat" (Abb.158c). However, it is sweeter, although it has a very thick skin. The "dukong" fruit, on the other hand, is similar to "duku," and hence to "langsat." (Click here to see what the "dukong" fruit looks like.) After all, they all belong to the same family. For me personally, "dukong" and "langsat" externally look indistinguishably similar. I only distinguish them by their irregular seeds that look like subformed grains of unripe (green) peas. The "langsat" seeds are green and bitter tasting (and therefore unpleasant when bitten into and impossible to swallow), while the "dukong" seeds are yellow and sour (and therefore tolerable when bitten into and even swallowable). "Dukong", however, has a more sour and refreshing taste than "duku", and contains much more juice. I should add that there is also a hybrid called "duku-langsat." This is a fruit created by crossing "langsat" with "duku". It has a slightly thicker skin than "langsat" (although thinner than "duku"), and is sweeter than "langsat" (although more sour than "duku").
