I read somewhere that when Putrajaya was being developed, it was planted with a lot of local and indigenous trees some of which are rare to the general public.
It is really a good move and my family and I do enjoy our occasional stroll in Putrajaya and see trees that we might not have seen otherwise.
Some areas where these trees are planted are marked and labelled so we learn about them, and at other areas; don't.
Just like this Butter Fruit / Velvet Apple / Buah Mentega fruit trees.
Thank goodness for Mama Kucing Kathy who managed to help identify the fruit. Thank you! ^^
As we already know that the fruits are edible; the next time we came across the fruiting trees, we can't resist tasting them. Best of all, since it's located in a public park, it's free. I don't suppose we are doing anything illegal picking up the ripe fruits... especially the fallen ones.
Anyways, if you want to know more about the fruit and tree, click this link.
Tasted like a cross between soursop and nona for me. It left a slightly bitter aftertaste but I kinda like this smooth tasting fruit.
I wonder what "new" local fruits we'll find next.
