NATURE & GASTRONOMY

 

 

 

  Suicide Tree

 

Thailand

Pong pong seeds, the poisonous fruits of the Suicide Tree, have a thin skin which initially is speckled green (fig.) and then somewhat resemble passionfruits (fig.).

 

Though, as they ripen, the fruits turn orangey-reddish, and then rather resemble apricots or peaches (fig.). See also List of Thai Botanical Names.
