Fruit Trees at Bukit Timah Core

August 30, 2011

Many tropical trees are grown for their edible fruits. The fruit trees displayed in our collection include Mango (Mangifera indica), Nangka (Artocarpus heterophyllus), Chempedak (Artocarpus integer), Rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum), Butterfuit (Diospyros discolor), Jambu Mawar (Syzygium jambos), and various varieties of Banana (Musa sp.) Not all fruits are sweet. Some are eaten more like vegetables, for example the Drumstick Tree (Moringa oleifera) and Ackee (Blighia sapida), and others are used to add flavour to cooking such as the Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) and asam gelugor (Garcinia atroviridis).
