Mabolo | @grupokalinangan

Mabolo is the fruit that grows from the Kamagong tree and is known as the Philippine persimmon. The tree is native to the Philippines and can reach up to 20 meters.

The skin of the fruit, mabolo, has short hairs that may be irritable to some.

Most varieties are seedless, but for those that have, the seeds can be found at the center of the fruit, surrounded by the white flesh (meat) of the fruit. It has an unpleasant smell but lessens as you peel the fruit.

The fruit is rich in vitamins and minerals such as calcium, protein, and iron.
