aka Calabash Tree fruit
The fruit that we bought last week is not deemed totally safe to consume as there are lots of caution made in the use of this fruit said to be from South America. The Hawaiian name is called laamia.

How did it get here? I was told that it is grown locally but not much is known about is. Thanks to fellow Naturalists from the MNS, I am now aware of its safety. In conclusion, I am NOT eating/cooking this fruit . I also suggest that those who come across such fruit to think twice.
We got it from a side stall in Ulu Yam Lama.
I also hope that Botanists here in Malaysia can enlighten us further about this 'laamia' fruit and also to clarify the connection between the so called "Mo Fa Kor" label because the seller repeatedly mentioned this name when selling us this fruit.
