Congratulations on the fruit.  How does this compare in quality with the other relatives. Looks interesting to grow.

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.
