The best fruits that I've eaten for the first time in my life traveling around Asia

Duku - Lansium parasiticum, also known as langsat or lanzones, is a species of tree in the Mahogany family. The plant originates from western Peninsular Malaysia.
The fruit can be elliptical, ovoid or round, measuring 2 to 7 centimetres in size. Fruits look much like small potatoes and are borne in clusters similar to grapes. The taste has been likened to a combination of grape and grapefruit and is considered excellent by most.


Mangostan - The purple mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), known simply as mangosteen, is a tropical evergreen tree believed to have originated in the Sunda Islands of the Malay archipelago and the Moluccas of Indonesia. It grows mainly in Southeast Asia, southwest India and other tropical areas such as Puerto Rico and Florida, where the tree has been introduced.
Fruit taste - similar to caramel, grass and butter. Magnificent
