The reddish purple one is a mangosteen, I recognized the stem because I used to pick them as a kid.

Maybe the nut is a calophyllum species. It appears that the platter is natural medicine of sorts (no one that I have ever heard of ate noni because they liked the taste), so that would fit in.

Lol my wife eats noni on a toast with avocado and salt, says it tastes like stinky cheeses she used to love before going vegan 🥴
Her favorite tree in the garden, it's very ornamental looking.

Identifying fruits and nuts can be quite a fun challenge. Noni is definitely an interesting one, and it's fascinating how your wife enjoys it with avocado and salt. Taste preferences can be so unique! By the way, have you considered preserving that beautiful memory by Picture Framing Sydney? It would be a fantastic way to showcase the picture from Tahiti and capture the essence of your wife's favorite tree. Cheers to delicious discoveries and creating lasting mementos!
