This is just outside the arrival area in Bali Airport. I was quite fascinated by the size of the fruit and thought of visiting a plantation while in Bali to learn about it.
We did road tours across the breadth and depth of Bali but could not spot even a single another tree. Finally I went to the arrival area while departing to take this photo.
The name of the tree is written on it. CALABASH is native to South America and is the national fruit of St Lucia. It’s called miracle fruit, capable of curing cancer, lowering blood sugar etc etc.
If it can grow in Bali, it can in Kerala. I must try and get a seedling and plant it.
Quite an attractive scenery to see such huge fruits on small tree.
