I am sure that the old ones and not-so-old ones will still remember the following fruits we enjoyed in the olden days:
1. Pudjusan (pojosan)
3. Lambunao (wild Lansones kuno ini)
8. Pagusi (Nymphea sp.)
10. Lomboy (Duhat)
12. Mabolo (Diospyros blancoi) aka Velvet Apple and Magcono Tree
15. Santa Maria
Mano Banoy suggested that we feature them here and identify how the Pidjanga community could help preserve or propagate these species for our children and grandchildren.
So far, I have featured at least 3, although usually by accident. These are the Kayape, Pagusi, and Mabolo.
What if we ran "Take Photos and get a Lake Mainit Shirt" contest? Whoever is able to take photos of at least 5 of the above will receive a Lake Mainit Shirt (check here). Photos will be featured in the Pidjanga blog and other Surigaonon websites (di ba Monyx?).
Let's see if I can find willing sponsors. What do you think?
PS: Honestly, I have never seen a Mangya, Poyangi, nor a Hagashas in my life.
