We acquired a "makopa" plant, or in scientific parlance, Syzygium samarangense. We have this tree in our front gate, the white variety. It's been there for years, and it's now big enough to reach electrical wires. It's still bearing those white fruits that are constantly being picked by birds.

This makopa plant was planted on our little Jala-Jala hut. I think it's the dark red variety. It's barely two weeks since it was planted, and we were surprised that it has fruits already! Yep, i thought that this plant should be full grown to bear flowers, but I guess I was wrong.

The fruit became to heave for the plant so the stems were drooping. I placed a bamboo stick to support it. The fruit of course could not be eaten for now. But everyone here's excited on how it would taste.
