The best way to eat it- scooped it up with a spoon-the flesh was sweet, smooth, not so juicy but birdnest-like (hence the name)

ABIU -BIRDNEST FRUIT.
The Abiu fruit a.k. Wong Kam Kor a.k. Birdnest Fruit grown at my backyard, had a bountiful harvest this year 2009. It's golden skin coincided with the Chinese New Year Festival theme of "gold and wealth." At the last count, it bears about 50+ fruits, around the size of Navel Oranges. The rainy and hot weather played a major role, aiding in the fruiting and growth of the Abiu fruit. Commercially I saw it on sale at RM3/ each, in front of the Cold Storage Supermarket in Jaya33, Petaling Jaya.
