  1. I thought Langsat is duku and little bit different from Kokosan Mas Denny..Langsat taste are sweet but kokosan are rather sour. Sorry if I make a mistake

    • Thank you, mbak Evi, for visiting my blog and for your honest comment. Indonesian local call it differently. For example in Bali, duku called ceroring, and kokosan called langsat. In other area, duku is langsat. πŸ™‚ And yes sour and sweet is the way to tell them apart. However, they are all a species of tree in the family Meliaceae. Reference: http://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duku . That is a great comment. Thank you, mbak Evi πŸ™‚

  2. Here in Tembilahan, Riau, I think we also use the same word like duku and langsat, only those two though, never heard bout the other names. :D. But here we also have ‘rambai’, looks similiar but usually they sell it while still attached with its shaft, and its rather sour. πŸ˜€ Too bad I cannot post its pic. πŸ˜€

    Nice blog you have here. πŸ˜€

    • Thank you, Mas Aulia, for visiting my blog and for your honest comment. In Bandung, most people only know Duku. They don’t know what is Langsat πŸ™‚ Feel proud of Indonesian rich language. Maybe Rambai is Kokosan? Must easy to find Langsat in Riau since this fruit mostly come from Sumatera. Thank you for the information. πŸ™‚
