This is one of my favorite plant, Parijoto (Medinilla arboricola).
This plant is usually found on the slope of the hills or riverside on the high land.
This plant loves cool area, and adaptable on the part shady area.
I love the fruits and also the little flowers.
Both of flower and young fruit have sour taste.
The black ripe fruit is fleshy and sweet.
This plant always remind me in to my childhood.
Last week, while I was waiting for my sister, I visited a nursery on the road side.
I found a lot of Parijoto trees there.
I was interested and bought two varieties of Parijoto.
Although the Nursery man said that both of them were the same variety, but when I noticed all part of the plants they looked different.
So I took home two little trees of Parijoto.
I'm so busy for last two weeks, so I planted the little tree a week after I took it home.
I hope they will be OK, and grow so well on the pots.
They will make my balcony more green and beautiful.
And of course give me more various fruit for my family.
Hope the will adaptable on our warm weather.
