Jeruk Pontianak

Eventually Papi's patience bears fruits, this time it is jerus pontianak (Citrus nobilis var. microcarpa) from one of his three citrus trees in the backyard. It bears small, thin rinded fruits that tastes sour and sweet.

Once its pistils appear, Papi reduces the clusters to make room for only one or two fruits to fully develop. And he left some for me to pick by hands. It was nice of him.

Last week he bought home some jeruk from Pontianak. When i went to Sara's, Kak Tatik insisted it should not be called jeruk pontianak since it is native to neighboring Sambas. So, from now on, I call it jeruk pontianak from Sambas.
