Ong Lumok fruit
Unripe fruits of 'Terap' (Malay) - Artocarpus odoratissimus
The Ong Lumok trees (Artocarpus odoratissimus ) at the park are showing promise. They are bearing fruits. In Malay it is called 'Terap'. It is a unique fruit found mainly on Borneo island. "Ong" in Bintulu Melanau means fruit, thus the Lumok fruit. There are a handful of very old Lumok trees at the park, planted more than 50 years ago and still bearing fruits. The picture above shows unripe fruits from a tree grown just about 5 years ago. In about a month's time the fruits will be ripe for the taking.
