MIRI: ‘Buah puak’ – also known as ‘buah tampoi’ – is among the fruits in season now.
The fruit is gradually making its appearance in various markets in the city since a fortnight ago.
Many think ‘buah tampoi’ is a wild fruit collected from the jungle.
“This may be true in the past. But the fruit we see in the market nowadays is the cultivated one,” said Johnson Bujang, the owner of an orchard in Bukit Peninjau near here.
