Nice white fruits

A friend from Terengganu, Long, mentioned about these nice looking fruits. He used to pick and eat them while walking to school. He had forgotten the name of the tree, he simply said "one of the jambu variety". The trees were abundant in his childhood days in Terengganu. I snapped this photo in Belum Rainforest Resort.... I never see this plant in Perak or anywhere nearby in Putrajaya. The taste is very much like jambu... because they are small, lets call them white berries.......

the fruits
nice, and very much edible.

unbelievably pure white

hairy flowers
and as the hairs drop off,
the fruits start to develop,
and in this case they develop
into nice looking
white fruits.
Photo of the same tree but different branch.

Someone out there may be able to recognise these fruits and the name as well.....


  1. wow. I've never seen anything like that before. What do they taste like?

  2. Hi. Do you know a fruiting plant named Lepisanthes Alata? The Malay name is Ceri Terengganu or Buah Johor. Nice white berries!

  3. I don't think I've ever seen a berry that color before!

  4. They look just like blueberries...only white

  5. That looks like snow berries.

  6. I've never seen such berries, such a pretty, white color. I wouldn't have thought they were edible.

  7. My dear commentators!!

    So we agree that they are unusual and beautiful white berries.... Yes, Very much edible.., the flesh inside looks like plum and tanjung... nice taste... Thanks prospero for pointing out the name... cheers! ~ bangchik

  8. Never seen this Ceri Terengganu, kind like barley I think.

  9. What lovely berries. I can't think of any edible white berries in North America. They're beautiful.

  10. >FJL... It is no way near barley... a lot bigger.. Barley tumbuh macam padi dan gandum!

    >Kim.... I think that's the only pure white fruit or berries I ever seen here....

    ~ cheers

  11. Just found your blog and started to read it from the very beginning.

    I found these unfamiliar trees at the lake near my house in Section 7, Shah Alam. I believed that the municipal plant them as "pokok hiasan". I dont know it is edible.

    Thanks for the info.
