Congratulations on the fruit.  How does this compare in quality with the other relatives. Looks interesting to grow.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Please see my comment on M. dioica.
For years I wanted to use raw unripe Gac fruit M. cochichinensis, as a vegetable. There should be a reason why SE Asians do not use this unripe as a vegetable as it is commonly grown there.

A friend of mine regularly uses M.cochinchinensis as a vegetable! I missed my chance, since I was not here when my Gac fruited. Next time I will.
