This & That Including What Ails

Local Fruit Trees In Lil Red Dot

on March 25, 2017

In our tiny common area garden surrounding the estate I live in, I realised we do have some local fruit trees.

Soursop Fruit Tree (*picture taken by me of the actual tree)

The soursop fruit looks like a knobbed shaped spiky fruit but it has a soft creamy white like texture that tastes sourish sweet. 

Our little garden tree is hardly strong enough to fruit. 

Local folklore claims that the leaves of the soursop tree helps in diabetic treatment and prevents cancer as it is rich in antioxidants.

The fruit is usually eaten in wedges or made into a drink or dribbled onto shaved ice for dessert.

Below is our little mango tree.

Last but not least, a young calamansi lime tree.

You have to search to see the green limes amongst the leaves.

Happy Healthy Saturday is wished for all….clean, green and carefree😊

  1. It’s always interesting to see what grows naturally in other countries…we’ve managed a lemon tree although it’s never had any lemons…
