Rambai


Baccaurea motleyana

Baccaurea motleyana, Euphorbiaceae. The rambai certainly epitomises the kampung feel of Pulau ubin. It is related to the duku langsat and tastes like it, except that it is sourish. My mum used to buy this from the market but now there are only apples and pears with the occasional regional fruits like the mangosteen or durian. Conserve our fruit heritage.
