Watermelon, Manggo, Calamansi Lime and Roselle

I have been busy running here and there within the last couple of weeks....


Very frustrated to see that the workers has been concentrated in clearing the farm rather than clearing the area where we planted our watermelon. The grass is at knee high and therefore more insect attacking the fruit and also less fruit as the watermelon trees needs to flight with the grass for fertilizer and sunshine!

Look at this grasses! Everyone get scolded from me yesterday! You can't even find the watermelon trees in this overgrown grass.

Those watermelon trees in a clear area has produce fruit which should be ready for harvest around end August.


Our mango trees is learning to produce their fruits and all over the farm there is mangoes trees with flowers and fruits...

Young mangoes drop from the trees.

Limau Kasturi/Calamansi Lime

I love my calamansi lime fruit...they really producing!


We harvested our roselle for the third time and we collected 180kgs fresh calyx. Fresh and full bloom as below: -

We started planting another 2.5 acre area and we hope in another 2 months time, we could harvest this area. We are now considering to plan in a new area of around 30 acres area.

Fruits....a lots of fruits in seasons now...since our orchard is a young orchard...our trees just learning to bear fruits...

We call this fruit kedondong or amra - nice to be drink as juice with sour plum.A dip into salt or sour plum sources is also very tasty...

Rambutan...we have 10 rambutan trees in our orchard only 1 tree bear fruit for this season and that one also bears only about 30 pieces...but praise to Allah for this rezeki.

Our durian and mangosteen tree will needs another couples of solid years to start bearing fruit.

Mango started fruiting since end of last year and now more trees bear flowers.

Our jack fruit...I'm not patient person, the fruit is not ripe enough but I cut it anyway, and as you can see below the color is not that orrange yet...but tasted very sweet and the flesh is quite thick..

Roselle - Karak

Alhamdulillah usaha gigih di Karak membuahkan hasil, puas hati betul dengan pertumbuhan pokok roselle pada masa ini....

Ni yang paling menyeronokan sekali...comel je crown ni keluar dari setiap pelepah pokok ni.

Ni rupanya microwave drier pakai belt, mesin ni panjang la plak, tempat pemprosan kami pendek je...harga yang ini lebih competitif.

This microwave dryer is smaller but more expensive!...We need to study both machine and the operations of the machine..........Doa kan kami berjaya!
