Fruits of the 'Ong Lumok' are in season at the park

Oil palm planted together with exotic fruit trees.....a signature idea in the Kambatik park

This month the 'Terap' trees (Artocarpus odoratissimus) or ' Ong Lumok' as called by the Bintulu Melanaus are bearing fruits.  They are seasonal fruits and this season seems to be bountiful.  The concept of oil palm cultivation integrated into existing or newly introduced exotic tree planting is a signature idea in the Kambatik park. In the top picture the over topping tree is the Balem fruit tree and below it the Terap tree.  The oil palm or 'Sawit' in Malay is at the bottom of the picture. Today I gathered a few of the half ripe fruits and will keep them for a day or two for ripening purposes.  The ripe fruits are very soft, sweet and tasty.  Checkout more stories of the many ways to eat the fruit in my blog here ...>>> my Kambatik world...
