The fruit of the Oil Palm (Borneo)

You can see the inside of the fruit. The kernel (white) is also used to produce oil (palm kernel oil).

Sadly, large parts of Borneo have already been turned into extensive oil palm plantations.

Oil palm monoculture is very bad for bio-diversity, both by destroying the jungle vegetation diversity, and by causing loss of habitat for many animal species.
