Lapsi is a native fruit of Nepal. It is extremely sour, even when fully ripe, and has a high vitamin C content. The fruit has a tough fibrous skin and pale yellow flesh, which is firmly attached to a large brown seed. A ripe lapsi has a pleasantly tart flavor and some people like to eat it fresh, but it is mainly used to make dried fruit nuggets or fruit leather (titauraa, maadaa, paaun) both sweet and salted. It is also pickled, cooked with vegetables or used as a souring agent.
