ADEM ATI : BIGGER FRUITS

My Adem Ati or Pumpkin Fruits (Sauropus macranthus) looks grow so well.
The fruitlets become bigger and bigger.
Some flowers are bearing under leaves.


The fruits are hanging here and there. 
It makes me so happy.





Hope they will get ripen.
And... no bug will visit it.


I can't wait to see the fruits ripe and ready to be picked.

  2. Baru kali ini membaca dan melihat buah Adem Ati,bagus warna buahnya. Apakah kegunaan buah ini Bu Endah? Letak buah dan daunnya mirip Makotadewa.

    1. Ini masih saudara dekat katu (Saoropus androgenus), daun dan bunganya sangat mirip. bunganya bisa dilihat di postingan saya yang lama di label Pumpkin Fruit. Lapisan daging yang melapisi bijinya rasanya manis harum dan sedikit lunak, hampir mirip jambu air. Makanya di daerah saya kadang disebut jambu mawar, padahal bukan kerabat jambu. Daging buahnya terasa dingin, mungkin ini alasannya disebut adem ati. Kabarnya bagian tanaman ini sering digunakan sebagai pereda panas dalam, tapi saya belum nemu literatur farmakologinya. kayaknya cocok untuk musim pilpres ini, kata suami saya.... :).

    2. weh, iya.. dari bunga sampai jadi buah mirip sekali dengan proses buah pohon katu juga. Kalau bijinya apakah seperti pohon katu juga? Pohon katu bisa diperbanyak dengan stek batang. Apakah Adem Ati juga demikian?
      Baru pertama kali ini saya melihat dan membaca tentang Buah Adem Ati.

    3. Mungkin bisa, tapi yang saya tanam dari sepertinya dari cangkok, dulu beli di Kaliurang. Bijinya mudah tumbuh. Sisa panen musim lalu bijinya tak taruh di pot, sekitar 2 bulan sudah tumbuh.

    1. Thank you Teresa. If we don't conserve the rare plants, they may disappear from our lovely earth someday.

  6. Ich finde deine Beiträge sehr interessant.
    Sauropus macranthus war mir bisher völlig unbekannt. Hier in Deutschland gibt es dafür noch nicht mal einen Namen.
    Wie schade, dass ich den Geschmack der Früchte nicht probieren kann.
    Gruß, Anette

    1. Thank you Anette. This plant is found on wet tropics. It's so rare right now. I'm lucky can grow it on my home garden. I hope one day you can see this real plant.
      Thank you for coming and have a wonderful day.
