Persimmon of Malaysia?

Not long ago, we travelled to Ipoh and at of of the Rest Area, Mamarazzi spotted a Fruit Vendor selling this fruit.

She had never seen this fruit before. The Vendor told her it's "Malaysian Persimmon".

Out of curiosity, she bought two fruit. Not cheap. RM12/kg. Two fruit already weight around 700gm.

Came home, we cut the fruit. The pulp was translucent white. Texture was a bit like Duku. Taste sweet but not as sweet as Persimmon.

Discovered that there is only one pip in the fruit. Hmm....maybe can plant this? The vendor said the tree is not that tall.

Does anyone know what is the real name of this fruit? Mamarazzi wanna know.


  1. hmmm, i have never seen this fruit before!! looks like a pear/apple but the flesh texture just looks like a persimmon (only this is translucent white).. err, how does it taste like actually??

    thanks for dropping by again :)

  20. Hello kitty cat i believed what u have here is abiu also known by some chinese in cantonese as wong kam ko aka direct translation golden fruit. Yes it is grown in tropical countries originally from south america.

    On the other hand my friend in kajang has grown a persimmon tree from seed. It is now taller than a 2 storey house. And after more than 6 years it has just flowers n i hoped they will become fruits.......

    Crazy about growing exotic fruit tree :-)

    I am at sunnyfreeze in facebook

  21. This is the Abiu fruit from South America. Imported fruit. I have it in my garden in Kuching. Not a local Malaysian fruit. It is closely related to the Calmito.
