From my Perspective for Cee’s Black & White


Here are some of the pictures from my last visit to the ranch. I hope you enjoy my selection.

  2. Phoenix Eye Fruit… (Sterculia monosperma) Never heard it called that, so I had to look it up using the kanji. As someone with an Asian background, rather embarrassing to admit that I didn’t recognize it from the photo. But I’d never seen it grown. Fascinating! In parts of the US, Americans eat these too — usually around Christmas. And very popular in Japan, especially at winter festivals.

    • I am even embarrassed to say I have never seen it or even heard of it until my aunt told me to take a picture. 😀 My aunt says Phoenix eye fruit is the name of the fruit in mandarin. I put the name in Google to translate and it came back as “Fungus Fruit” 😀 don’t know what deal was.

      • Yay! I’m not alone. 😉 I’ve just heard the nuts called “Chinese chestnuts” (in Japan & the US), or “Chinese peanuts” (in Thailand). But I like the name “Phoenix eye fruit” better. I’ve eaten them in Japan, Taiwan and Thailand. Smaller than American chestnuts, but very tasty. Nice street-food treat, especially on a cold night.

        If I recall correctly, I think I heard somewhere that they’re being grown in the US to replace regular chestnut trees because they’re resistant to a chestnut tree disease. Never knew what the tree looked like.
