Last Cempedak fruit

The last Cempedak fruit (Artocarpus integer), plucked from tree at Zone C
Cempedak fritters

 Since ten days ago, there was no rain at the park.  This is a sure indication that the rainy monsoon season (Nov-Feb) is over.  The end of the year season of fruits is also over in Bintulu.  However there is one Cempedak fruit that is left to be plucked.  Today this  last fruit was eaten fresh, made into fritters and the seeds boiled to be eaten with honey.  The last season of Cempedak was most memorable because the trees that were here more than 60 years ago still continue to produce fruits this year.
