Santol (Lolly Fruit)

Santol (sour apple, cotton fruit, or lolly fruit) is one of the well-known fruits in the Philippines. Scientifically known as Sandoricum koetjape, the santol can also be found in other parts of Southeast Asia. Shown below is the yellow variety of the fruit, which has a fuzzy rind.

The inedible brown seeds are enclosed by a pulp that may be sweet or sour. The pulp can be enjoyed as it is, while the rind can be eaten with salt. Aside from being used as a souring agent for sinigang, the whole fruit can be made into candies, marmalades or jams.
