Fruit at Mother's House ~ Nature Tuesday

This is the srikaya tree in my mother’s house. I took the picture last Monday with a cellphone camera. If you pay attention, you can see there are two srikaya that hang there. The small one is almost ripe and the big one is still raw. I have posted about this fruit twice https://virily.com/home-gardening/srikaya-365-photos-challenge-181/ and https://virily.com/virily_poll/srikaya-once-again-macro-monday/.

Many people like this fruit, including my wife, unfortunately not many people have this tree. Many people ask my mother for this fruit, and she certainly gives it, even though she often has to give up this fruit when she wants to pick it already eaten by the bats. Basically, she was only happy to plant and care for plants, including several types of betel and other medicinal plants that people often needed, and my mother was very happy when someone asked for something from her. In fact, she is well known by the traders around her because she almost never refuse anything they sell when they offer her on the grounds of pity or empathy for them, and without bargaining. In the house where she lives alone, there is so much stuff and food to be wasteful because no one uses or eats it. We have advised our mother not to always buy what is offered to her but it seems our advice is not effective.

By the way, this fruit, besides being delicious to eat as a fruit, is also very delicious as a jam.
