The tree Glochidion litorrale is a pioneering species in damp gullies and rainforest. It belongs to the Rubber Tree Family (Euphorbiaceae) but does not have white sap. It has a wide distribution, ranging from India, Sri Lanka, Indochina, S. E. Asia.
I don’t know where other places have this plant in Singapore. It is very rare in Singapore, does it mean it can’t grow well here? According to the sign I found below the tree, it is called “ Monkey apple” no further details been given. Are these fruits editable? Are these lovely pinky fruits monkey’s favorite food?
Ann have a post crab apple, I am still trying to find out if there are the same family.
Visit Beverly at Pink Saturday and all the participants who share their sweet pink mood for this weekend. Cheers.
