A delectible fruit commonly identified by its sometimes furry outer covering and musky scent. One must be wary of picking out fresh puntangalo- either under ripe or overly seasoned the puntangalo has a very narrow middle ground of perfect freshness. While an in season puntangalo is both delectible and a treasure, out of season puntangalos are considered to be an aquired taste.
The puntangalo's overly musky odor and mussed fur prompted the question "Are these puntangalos fresh?"
