spiky fruits of the mangrove
Here’s another favourite nature objects of the Sebung River mangrove, Bintan, after the numerous snakes from mangrove snakes to phyton and viper and the cute silvered leaf monkey. Pandanus has bright coloured fruits. This particular Pandanus affinis, however, has its fruits deep red with yellow lining between the spikes. The colour combination makes it distinct in the dominant green of the mangrove. This species lives in the damp area on the banks of Sebung River in the freshwater part. Many of the 600 pandan species fruits are edible, but I’m not sure about this one. Anybody want to try?
