Fruits trees of Chek Jawa

Rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum)
Among our favourite fruits, there are lots of rambutan trees throughout Pulau Ubin. And some on Chek Jawa too.

Jambu bol (Syzygium malaccense)
There are several of these large trees on the way to Chek Jawa and at Chek Jawa. The pom-pom like flowers are bright pink, and turn into oval shaped jambu. Apparently this jambu is very delicate and thus hard to bring to market. So you can only eat it at Pulau Ubin!
