Today my Dad brought home several kind of fruits he didn’t usually bought, like persimmon, canistel/egg fruit, matoa, and this thing. I thought it was ’hoozuki’/winter cherry/chinese lampion flower because its (seemingly) similar feature. But he said it’s ’cecenet’ (in Sundanese). I am surprised, because if it’s called ‘winter cherry’, no way it could grow in no-winter-country like Indonesia, right? And i bet Dad doesn’t bought it from any stores, he must have had harvested them from wild field somewhere.

Later i googled it and found that cecenet and hoozuki shares same genus, while latin name for cecenet is Physalys angulata, hoozuki is Physalys alkekengi

FYI cecenet tastes like tomato.
