ceylong olive (E. serratus)

    11 responses

fruitist starts with ...
Also called Veralu in Sri Lanka or Verali Pallam in India. Like to hear from local people where the fruits are grown on how long to boil the fuits before pickling or eaten with sprinkle of salt?

For Sibu Olive aka Dabai (Canarium odontophyllum), you cannot use too hot water otherwise the skin of the fruits will become hard and tough. The water must be just luke warm and soak the fruits for about 10 minutes.

Hi Fruitist,

In most cases the fruit will change colour.. and a crack/s will appear on the flesh.. this is when you take it out and sprinkle a mixture of equal parts of salt,chillie powder, pepper, vinigar and a bit of sugar. YUMMMMYYY!!

Ill be up in Brisbane in 2 weeks time where can I get some Ceylon Olives.. or Rambutans for that matter?

Thnx for for handy tip on boiling the fruits. Unfortunately, I only have one fruit amidst masses of flowers which more or less continuously flower all year around. I hope the flowers will produce more fruits as I have resorted to try borax spray to coax fruiting. I also don't have any Rambutan seedlings left if you have read other threads.

I currenly have a bit of the salty plum powder leftover. The powder is not available in OZ as the person who gave some to me works in the Yuen's Grocery and she has never seen it on the selves here. I intend to use it on the fruit when it is ready. Have anyone used Black Soya Besan Sauce. I have used it on Pineapple, Starfruit, Sibu Olives and others. I will ask my relations to bring a few packets back from Borneo in the next few months.

There other delicious ways to eat Sibu Oives. Wash the fruits with fresh water and then soak them in a urn with undiluted Black Soya Sauce or put them dry in a urn and mix lots of salt in. Leave them for a few weeks until the pulp is soft. There are also commercial salted preserved ones (preserved in salt) which have the pits removed. You eat them with rice porridge.

Hi Audrey T

Try www.rarepalmseeds.com they are selling it at 6.10 euros per packet of 10 seeds. Check first if it is allowed for importation to OZ.

Happy Gardening :-)
