This exotic fruit is too rare. I have visited a lot of Wet markets (Palengke) around the Philippines and I only saw them sold in San Pablo City Market in Laguna. Unfortunately, I do not dare to taste fruits which is too foreign to me, especially when the weather is too hot.

Raspberries is also called in Filipino as Prambuwesas.
