It is a palm, commonly cultivated on Bali, wiith best fruit comming from ne of 
the island.  Also common in several other se asian countries.  Plant quite spiny
fruit very tasty, aboiut sizi of apple, brown and scaly.

There are several good books on fruit adnd cultivation...but I cannot think of 
titles.  Any tropical fruit book based on se asia wuill have details.  Try Pop
...Try Poponore Tropical Fruit..quite old but has been reprinted.  Also "Cultivated Palms of the World".  Another is Malaysian Palms.
Good Luck....Peter Harrison Agriculturalk Sientioscientist.
