Lanzones

Mostly unknown in the West, the lanzones ( Lansium domesticum Corr.) are popular all throughout Southeast Asia. Called duku in Indonesia and lang-sat in Thailand, they are an exceedingly sweet and slightly sour taste.

But beware, one must be careful not to bite into the bitter seed! Export potential is limited because the fruit perishes easily after ripening and the skin exudes milky latex which is messy to the hands and lips.

The 3 most common varieties in the Philippines are "Paete", "Camiguin", and "Jolo" cultivars. Pictured here is the sweetest of them all, the Camiguin variety which comes from the island province of the same name. Note the swarm of ants partaking of the sugary nectar. That's how sweet this fruit is! Definitely one of the favorites, ranked alongside the Cebu mangoes and the durian.

Pastel

Pastel, is a sweet delicacy from the paradise island of Camiguin in Northern Mindanao. These are soft, fragrant and sweet buns filled with the original yema (made mostly of milk, eggs and sugar) or any other flavors that gives this delicacy that makes the food melts in your mouth.

Boxes of 6 are sold at stores in Camiguin towns or at the shopping centers of Cagayan de Oro for about P50 and Boxes for 12 at around P120. It’s a hit pasalubong for anyone craving for sweets and anything Camiguin or CdeO (of course don’t forget the lanzones and the pineapple).
