This is one of my favorite wild fruit.

It’s taste sour. Can be found in the forest.

Our term for this is “digway”. I don’t know the English term of it.

“Digway”, what dialect or language is that? I couldn’t give the proper reaction to this wild fruit for I don’t know where do you live? I am a Filipino and our forest has a lot of wild plants and fruits which I don’t know their names, their benefits or their limitation for the human consumption. We need more details on this fruit and also the very reason why you like this kind of fruit.

It is difficult for us to search in the Internet by the picture alone. We are using keywords, phrases to classify our researches on various topics or subjects, especially of this kind of fruit. This is the first time that I have seen this fruit. Therefore, I am curious to know more of this fruit if you could provide us its usefulness, its elements and nutritious value, and everything. And be sure to express more on a considerable length of statement. I hope you get it.

I get it dear @nakitakona13.

I’m sorry,but i don’t know either the english term for this. In our dialect,which is kankanaey, we termed this as Digway.

That is why I posted it, so someone might know this kind of fruit.

I like the sour taste of this fruit. My grandparent says that eating this fruit will strengthen our immune system.  I don’t know if their is a scientific explanation for this.

Maybe someone might help me explain what this is .

🙂 :-):-)

Anyways, @nakitakona13, I’m from the Province of Benguet in Region CAR. 🙂

@shantal No wonder why your name sounds a native of a country. I don’t know what particular country you belong. I have not guessed that you are also from the Philippines. It is nice to know you here. I have a nephew who got married from a particular place in Mountain Province. By the way, how’s your place which had been visited the by the super typhoon “Lawin”, I  think?  Is your family okay? It was a terribly wrath of that typhoon Lawin had done several weeks ago.

Wild fruits are so many in the Benguet province. Aren’t they? Once they are edible and eaten by the animals and birds, they are also safe for the people to eat. Wild as they are, they are rich in nutritious value, mineral, and even vitamins. Those wild fruits should be protected by the government from being cut down by illegal loggers. They should be preserved for they offer benefit to the people especially their health. Anyway, I would glad to be hearing more about you. Keep on writing.

My pleasure to be a part of LB. Thank you for such a warm welcome. 🙂

Regarding that typhoon “Lawin,” my family is safe, thanks for asking. Though, almost all of our plants here in Benguet got ruined by the typhoon. Hopefully, things will get better soon.

About that wild fruit, you’re absolutely right. There are many kinds of wild fruit here in our province, and it’s true, they are delicious, rich in nutrients,  vitamins, and minerals.
