Flowers of Jamaican Cherry Tree

This tree has many names. Indonesian people call it kersen, ceri or talok. Some other names: kerukup siam (Malaysia), datiles, aratiles or manzanitas (Philippine), capulin blanco, cacaniqua, nigua, or niguito (Spain), Jamaican Cherry, Panama Berry or Singapore Cherry (England).

Have your ever tasted its sweet, juicy and full of tiny seeds fruits? This tree is located in the front of my left side neighbor’s house. The fruits aren’t red yet, I still have to wait more.

The flowers are small, white and last only one day. Its petals are falling in the afternoon. I read that the flowers can be used as an antiseptic and a medicine for headache and cold.

I love aratiles small red juicy fruits. I don't see them around my neighborhood anymore so I miss eating one!

The flowers are beautiful, and if you can only see them for one day, I'd have to spend the day by the tree! A year is a long time to wait between shows!
