Hunggo with scientific Name Elaeocarpus cumingi is one of the exotic and edible fruits found and eaten in the Philippines. The tree grows up to 30 meters high an enemic species in the country. The fruits are oblong.

 

I found this fruit being sold outside the Public market of San Pablo City, Laguna together with some other fruits, but by only one vendor. It was unfortunate that I did not dare to try eating the fruit as they are being sold in an open container and flies can land on them. The vendor said it can be eaten as is or with a bit of salt and some buyers cook them as jams.
