garden-en: Pangium edule (Indonesian: keluak or keluwak; Malay: kepayang or payang; Dusun: pangi) is a tall tree native to the mangrove swamps of Southeast Asia (Indonesia and Papua New Guinea]). It produces a large poisonous fruit (the "football fruit") which can be made edible by fermentation.

The tree requires many years to mature and the seeds are therefore most frequently harvested from wild trees, as it is not economically feasible to cultivate. Although poisonous to humans, the seeds of the tree form part of the natural diet of the babirusa (Babyroussa babyrussa). [Wikipedia]

Synonyms: Hydnocarpus polyandra, Pangium ceramense, Pangium naumannii, Pangium rumphii
