Lipoten also known as Liputen is one of the exotic fruits found in the Philippines.

Lipoten fruits are eaten as is when fully ripe, but with a bit of sour and tart taste Lipoten fruits with a deep purple Color when ripe are also made into wine by the residence who have still access to the Lipoten tree, like those living in one of  the provinces of the Philippines which is  Laguna, particularly in Liliw, Laguna where I personally saw the fruits being sold on the streets and had a privelege of  tasting this exotic fruit which is very new to me.

I am so glad, I did this tour in Liliw, Laguna with my Long lost friend whom I havent seen for almost 30 years and enjoyed with her this exotic fruit which we both tasted for the first time. My friend also enjoyed the wine from the fruit while I enjoyed the fruit as is  drizzled with a bit of salt.
