Last week I got a special gift from my friend, a plastic bag of Sawo.
Look the little tree on my friends garden.

There are a plentiful fruits hanging on the tree.
So lovely...

The mature fruits...
The fruit is usually picked when the fruit have mature enough, but the flesh is still hard and tough.

The fruit clusters are appearing on the end of the branches.

I have already shared you about the fresh fruit after it have already picked.
Now, I'm sharing you about the fruit inside.

Yesterday morning, I checked my rice box, and I found some Sawo fruits have already ripen.
The fruits were a little bit tender.

Then I cut it, and I saw its juicy flesh.
I tasted it, emmmhhh.... very very sweet and the smell is very good.

We can find 1-4 seeds inside, between the flesh.
The seed is black and almost flat.
We (Javanese) call the seed as 'Kecik'.


When I was a little girl, I used to play a traditional game for girls, the game is called 'Dakon' or 'Congklak'.
We use a wooden board with holes on it and some Sawo seeds
In that  game, we also hone our skill on numeracy.
That's a pair game.
I love that game! 


So... I collect the seeds for my daughter.
And I hope she could play that game, an old fashion game, a traditional game.
This fruit is sweet and tasty, and also remind me in to my childhood.
A lovely fruit...
Thanks friend for this lovely fruit...


  1. Widzę Endah, że jesteś bardzo sentymentalną osobą! Dobrze mieć miłe wspomnienia. Owoce pięknie dojrzewają i wyglądają bardzo apetycznie.
    Przesyłam serdeczne pozdrowienia.

    1. Thank you Ewa! I love this fruit, both of the taste and the memory. Not just the flesh, the aroma is really appetizing. I hope someday you can taste it.
      Have a nice week!

  2. Salam Endah,

    Di sini ia di panggil ciku. Dah laaaaammmaaaa tak makan buah ciku ni. Kalau masak ranum (ripe) sangat sedap dan manis!

    1. Salam Honey,
      Betul, kalau masak pohon benar-benar nikmat sweet and fresh. Saya juga sudah lama tidak makan sawo seperti ini. Beruntung teman saya menghadiahi saya buah lezat ini.

  3. The fruit looks good. I hope your daughter will play the game, it sounds like an old tradition that should be handed down to the children and it doesn't involve batteries!

    1. Thanks. Yes, an eco friendly game, cause we reuse waste or old material, and of course it doesn't involve batteries. There are so many lesson in a traditional game; social awareness, friendship, arithmetic, problem solving and many more.

  4. Never heard of this fruit..would love to try it one day. I love the old fashion play...Your daughter will love the time that you spend teaching her the game. Have a wonderful evening in your country.

    1. Yeah, I hope you will taste it one day. I think so. Now, it's not easy to find girls play this game. Almost game use modern gadget, and it will reduce their social awareness.
      Thank you for visiting, have a wonderful weekend!
