Besides the wild nutmegs were these wild Anacardiaceae fruits (fruit large, fleshy with large flattened stone set with coarse fibres enclosing one seed). They can be very poisonous! Example of a poisonous species is the Lanjut (after which the Jalan Lanjut is named), where the “vapour of the freshly bruised fruit tissues can affect the skin”.
