The kesusu fruit is one of the strangest fruits of Borneo. This interesting fruit only grows in the humid tropics of South East Asia and has been given many other names such as Karon, Buruni, and Ematak. The kesusu fruit (scientific name: Prainea limpato) actually belongs to the Jackfruit family (Anacardiaceae).

The edible parts of the fruit are the protruding seeds that are soft and can easily be pulled out. The fruit tastes sweet yet a little sour.  When ripe, the kesusu fruit usually turns bright orangey-yellow.
