Thans Hifarm
It might be Dulcis , I think Beni or Maryoto or else in Indonesia could tell me if Dulcis or what variety is.

B. edulis?


vs. dulcis looks like this:




vs. macrocarpa


Honestly the skin, thickness of the flesh, and seed look a little different to me than all of these 3...

I think it looks most like macrocarpa except the skin is smoother. But I guess there is variation even in the same variety, because it looks a LOT like the fruit on the left side of the picture.

If you have the plant, here is a page I found that describes the differences between many Baccaureas: http://www.nationaalherbarium.nl/Euphorbs/specB/Baccaurea.htm

pics of dulcis' aril generally look translucent but evidently also occurs as opaque, as you would see here:
