The Velvet Apple or Mabolo (Diospyros blancoi, Diospyros discolor) is a medium size evergreen tree native to the Philippines. It produces beautiful velvety reddish orange fruits about the size and shape of an apple and covered with a velvet-like skin.

     The fruit is has a pleasant mildly sweet taste, similar to a peach, but has an odor that is similar to a mild to strong cheese, that some people find unpleasant.
