    I do. I cook it on hot coals, core it out, then fill it with cocount cream, curry, and chicken bits, and then cook it some more.

    Best. Stuffed. Food. Evar.

    So, that was the use?

    EDIT

    Wow, apparently the whole tree has a lot of medical uses. (From http://www.bioversityinternational.org/Publications/Pdf/342.pdf)
