The Jambu Air tree is fruiting
Fruits of the 'Jambu Air' (Malay) - Syzium aqueum
My efforts at planting the Jambu Air plant at the Kambatik Park has bore fruits. After about a two and a half years wait the tree is growing well in a location that is constantly wet because whenever there is heavy rain the place would receive flash floods. It seemed obvious now that even under conditions of too much water, the tree is a survivor. Occasionally I would cut the grass around the tree and once in a while provide it with fertiliser i.e. by digging deep into the ground for fear of being easily wasjhed away. This planting is part of the edible landscaping concept or Sara Landskap. This concept literally bears fruits!!
