There is this garden in Sg Tengah, No 10 I think.
The tenant there has several trees and she sells
the fruits when they are ready. You can buy some
and eat them; and get the seeds.

I am looking for the fruits/seeds too. Cannot find the place mentioned above as there isn't a no 10 Sungei Tengah road. Any landmarks nearby?

Hi Jambul,
Sorry I cant recall any landmark but I know the place.
Maybe it is Lot 10... all I remember is that there is a wide doorway,
leading to three tenants... It's the first doorway after Lor Pasu if I
recall correctly... http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif but I may be wrong... http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif


Anyway her place is the middle plot... The right plot is an orchid
growing area...

ABIU? Cant you get from nurseries? Have seen stocks in a few places. Why grow from seeds? They will take another century to fruit.

Can you please tell me where you saw them? Been looking around and some nurseries don't even know what Abiu is. Growing from seeds is last resort.

Hup... trip is postponed to another 3 months or so. The trees
do not have fruits as the flowers did not hold, according to the
owner. And she was frustrated when she informed me about it.
She depends on these fruits for an income as well...

jambul, the Chinese name 'huang jing guo' is loosely translated as yellow-sparkling-fruit.
