|Ripe fruits of Physalis minima or 'Letup-Letup' in Malay.|
There are plenty of ripe berries of the Physalis minima at the Kambatik Park right now. I have identified a spot near the Butterfly Garden area suitable for planting the 'Letu-Letup'. This plant though imported a few of years ago to the park seems to like the environment here and are 'self-propagating' naturally through its ripe seeds. It requires very little maintenance though a good dose of fertiliser would surely make the stems stout and more fruit-bearing. When available the berries make good menu for vegetable salad for they taste very much like tomatoes (see below).

Today, taking advantage of the fast speed internet in KL, I took half of the morning to beef up a new blog dedicated to the Kambatik garden in Kuching. This blog compiles my earlier stories and images of the Kuching garden that could trace the development of the Malaysian garden project in Kuching. The blog url is http://kambatikgardenkch.blogspot.my/ . Happy visiting the garden.
