Kamagong (Diospyros blancoi) tree with fruits (Mabolos)

A fruit of the Kamagong tree is called a mabolo in the Philippines. The only thing which does not make the fruit endearing to the Filipinos is its aroma, which is strong, and can be removed by peeling off the skin. The seeds may be very large but seedless varieties exist. The texture of the fruit is like apple or papaya, and the taste is delicious when the opened fruit is chilled.
