Alsomitra macrocarpa Seeds

Javan cucumber is a species of gourd-bearing liana belonging to the pumpkin family Cucurbitaceae. It is native to the tropical forests of Maritime Southeast Asia, as well as Thailand and New Guinea and its nearby islands.

The fruits or pepos are football-sized (about 300mm diameter) and bell-shaped, suspended high in the forest canopy, and are densely packed with large numbers of seeds. Remarkably the seeds have large, papery wings and when ripe they fall from the underside of the fruit and glide long distances.
