Default Unknown tropical tree

Hello!

A question from the German de.rec.garten-group:
Does anyone know this tree from North-Thailand?

It seems to me that here are more experts for tropical plants.

I do not know what it is. However, it appears to be a vine climbing a
tree and not the tree itself.

When the President of the United States makes a statement of
national importance, I want to see his face as he is talking.
At the least, I want to hear his voice. Presidents should
not be making public statements that are of no importance.

Donald: Stop tweeting. Otherwise, how do we know the message
really comes from you?

My idea was, that it is a kind of eucalyptus. But a masterclass from
de.rec.garten *) now found the right tree: Couroupita guianensis

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanonenkugelbaum

*) Dr. Gotthelf Wolmershäuser, with his nice garden, full of other Ericales:

Yes, it is a "Cannonball Tree". I remember seeing the tree in Singapore
Botanic Gardens many years ago. It is not a tree you want to examine up
close, as it drops its fruits without warning!

Indeed. Gotthelf posted an ID request to uk.rec.gardening about 6 years
ago. There was a link to his garden website in the post, and I was
amazed at how beautiful the garden was, and what a wonderful variety of
plants were growing there.

there are many to Sri Lanka Au Sri Lanka they eat the fruits.

the fruits are like some meat when they are not mature. That seem to be some
beef stew. once upon mature the fruits are like fruits.

I did eate it to Sri Lanka, and I can say you than we do not made the
difference between the beef stew and cannonball tree's fruit
