On botanical Latin is Sandoricum koetjape, what is hard to pronounce. This unique tree is among the largest and oldest fruit trees in the world - we saw 500 years old tree, according to local sources - and we believe it - tree was giant! Santol fruits has 2-in-1 tastes - middle fruit is sweet while the rest around -- sour. This part used for the best-i-ever-try sauce, self-invented after inspiration.
Sauce was not just delicious but has a strong stomach-healing effects, which will be highlighted separately. And beautiful - look its greenery!
Seeds of Santol, or cotton-fruit, remained from sauce and were dig at the home garden. 2 weeks after many of orange & raspberry-colored sprouts of Santol appears! Being beautiful itself and having that tasty big yellow balls, Santol also hosts some divine animals, as you will see below, and for years it is under our constant interest. As a holy Rudraksha tree, Santol has red leaves and similar colors of its bark.
And it was a tree of Santol, on which we've met unique flying wander - rare amazing giant butterfly! Look more photos of Santol and butterfly on our photo-stock.
