Specimen B: Akee (Blighia sapida) – The national fruit of Jamaica! Read about it from here or wiki. It did cross my mind to take a bite of the seed.. but then, I probably wouldn’t be writing this right now. Apparently it’s poisonous before ripe!
Specimen C – According to several readers, this fruit is pei pa or the chinese loquat. The fruit which syrups makes the yummy and healthy tonic, Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa. Its a tonic synonymous to reduce sore throat, coughs and various other ailments. You can probably find this tonic at any Chinese Medical Hall around the world.
It never occurred to me that this was a loquat tree, as it didn’t resemble the loquat tree i used to pluck fruit from ,when living in Perth. The fruits were of a completely different shape over there. I love loquats.
Specimen D – This one below still has us clueless. We haven’t found a name for it. It might even be a plant of a regular fruit we eat. HELP!
Its not passion fruit, nor plum and not fig either. Notice that it’s a vine plant and that the leaves cover the fruit which is about the size of small apple. I will have to pluck one of them during my next visit here. What is it?
