At this time the fruit season (December-February) Ihau pieces can still be found in the market-traditional markets in the interior of the Mahakam. But this time Ihau fruit can also be found at a roadside fruit seller in Samarinda. When asked the origin of the fruit, the seller no longer answer the origin of interior Mahakam memikili dense forests, but the fruit has been dikebunkan ihau by farmers on the outskirts of the city of Samarinda, exactly in the Village District Lempake North Samarinda.
