Siva sniffing the very fragrant Sentol purchased from the Thai embassy bazaar (no apples and pears there, just durians, mangosteen, jambus, mangoes etc). The Sentol, Sandoricum koetjape, Meliaceae is a fruit of the past. I have eaten it on occasions when my grandmother or mum got it from Malaysia or the local wet markets when it was in season. My landlady used to comment that she very much enjoyed eating fruits and vegetables that were in season. Chen Kee also got a first taste of this relic fruit. Active conservation of our fruit heritage. I wonder if we’ll find info on the nutritional value of such fruits compared to grapes, oranges and pears.
Thanks for the comment below Otterman!
