DISCOVERIES: BIGNAY

Bignay branch found beside the Country Mansion,
Laguna, Philippines


Mind you, I'm a nature-lover too! I love to take pictures of plants and appreciate the mountains, seas and the fields.

When we went to Talangka this afternoon, we discovered a bunch of freshly-cut branches laid beside the street where our 'resthouse' (or bahay sa bukid in tagalog) was built. I learned that its tree is called bignay.

I've done a little research regarding this plant and realized that its kind is found in only Southeast Asia, Australia and India. It's termed currant in English. It's edible and contains calcium and iron.
