Tropical Fruit Discussion / help identify this fruit tree
« on: August 25, 2019, 08:24:31 AM »
A friend of mine asked me to identify this tree; he said to me he got the seeds from me when I came back from Peru. I don't remember. The seeds are big (about 5 cm), striated.

   Fruits and seeds of Elateriospermum tapos. Nice tree with red young leaves from Sarawak.
The taste of the seeds remind me almonds. As it's an Euphorbiaceae we can eat just few kelampaÏ or we have to cook it.
