Lansium domesticum, also known as langsat or lanzones, is a species of tree in the family Meliaceae. The plant, which originates from western Southeast Asia, bears edible fruit. It is the provincial flower for the Indonesian province of South Sumatra. But you can only find the sweetest Lanzones here in Camiguin Island, Philippines.
The fruit is can be elliptical, oval, or round, measuring 2 to 7 centimetres (0.79 to 2.8 in) by 1.5 to 5 centimetres (0.59 to 2.0 in) in size. It is covered by thin, yellow hair and a sheathe of leaves that do not fall off. The skin of the fruit is think, approximately 6 millimetres (0.24 in). The fruit contains 1 to 3 seeds, flat, and bitter tasting; the seeds are covered with a thick, clear-white aril that is tastes sweet and sour.
People from Camiguin Island calls Lanzones as Buahan(bwah-han). Tourists would love to taste and experience the breeze in Camiguin Island especially on the 3rd week of October which they celebrate the LANZONES FESTIVAL every year. Citizens from other places would rather bring alot of boxes of Lanzones back to their home and share them to others how Lanzones are sweet from Camiguin Island.
I would prefer not to say a lot about Lanzones. I want you to discover the taste of it coz for sure you'll make to visit Camiguin Island during on their Lanzones Festival event that happens yearly. Enjoy the sweet taste of Lanzones but don't make eat too much of it. Lanzones fruit contains sucrose, fructose and glucose that's why its very sweet.
