huge spiky fruit, almost the size of a soccer ball and very heavy. was growing on a vine, but the leaves were high up in the canopy and I couldn't see them. similar to Opuntia cacti, there are small spines covering this fruit which are irritating to the skin. I found this out the hard way!
tropical rainforest, coastal
I only saw this fruit at Tangkoko Batuangus Nature Reserve, but I did spot it a few times there.
