FRUITFUL 3-YEAR-OLD PALAMUTI BIGNAY
A three-year-old marcot of Palamuti bignay is proving to be prolific at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal. It is still a small tree but is already productive.
Palamuti is a selection by the Institute of Plant Breeding at UP Los Baños many years back. It is a variety that in fruit most parts of the year. Fruiting comes in succession.
The berries are nice to eat as fresh fruit once they turn black. They have a pleasant sweetish-sour taste, loaded with antioxidants and vitamins. The fruits are also good for making wine.
