My World Tuesday , Outdoor Wednesday: Fan Palm.


Take my better looking side or angle. It seems that celebrities are told that certain angles of their face  make them look better. As for me, I always hide at the back if we were taking a group photo. LOL

This post started with my ex Kai Chung student Dora, posting on her Facebook page. I thought the grower had planted grapes and used the palm as a frame for support. Dora said is was inedible and the birds ate them. The sceptical me asked if the grower had put some fake fruits to fool Dora. Right photo, the gorgeous looking fruits. Left side, the same plant. The fruits looks so delicious that I just want to chomp on them.

 Francis posted his fan palm fruits, and you can see that the fruits are of inferior quality. If you were growing palm oil, you need to feed the trees. I asked Francis if he fertilised his plant, and he did it once in a while. The fruits will turn from orange to red. A farmer needs to feed his plants to get good fruits. Thanks Dora and Francis. And the other Francis from Canada who has never seen this fruit before, neither have I.

Fake fruits or flowers are now done so well that sometimes you don't even realize that they are fake !

That FB question you asked a million years ago, whether that was me trying to be 'friends' with you, the answer is ya la! finally, i love this fan palm..though not planted over in my house. happy week :)

Great pictures of the palms and their fruit. What a pity they are inedible they look so tempting.
