Previously, something similar had gone viral in Indonesia. It is known that a resident of the Banjarnegara region found giant petai. After an investigation, however, it turned out that it was not petai, but entada fruit.
Entada fruits are similar in shape to petai but are large in size. Entada is a type of vine.
Are the petai the Malaysian found really huge petai? If not, could it be an entada fruit like the one in Banjarnegara? (Suara.com/Hiromi Kyuna)
