Kepel (stelococarpus burahol)
Kepel is a fruit native to Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia. The fruit is small, round, and has a green to yellowish-brown skin that is covered in fine hairs. The flesh is white and soft, with a flavor that is described as a combination of banana, pineapple, and jackfruit.
Kepel is often eaten fresh, but it can also be used in desserts, jams, and preserves. It is also sometimes used in traditional medicine for its supposed health benefits, although there is limited scientific research on its medicinal properties.
One unique feature of fruit is its aroma, which is said to resemble that of the durian fruit. However, while durian has a strong and pungent odor that is off-putting to some, kepel is said to have a milder and more pleasant aroma.
