Batuan Fruits

For the first time, we were given the chance to see batuan, a fruit of the Garcinia morella tree that grows not just in Negros island but also in other parts of Southeast Asia. Based on the scientific name, it can be deduced that batuan is related to mangosteen but the taste is extremely sour. As a result, batuan is a very good souring agent for the soup dish sinigang.

Here is a picture of the batuan fruits we got hold of before cooking the sinigang:
