REAPING AND RELISHING SAPODILLA PLUMS Reaching out towards freshness all ripened, Holding onto huge branches hovering high, Not bothered about tan getting deepened, I hand pluck lush naseberries straight from the sky; Savouring sweetness with a satisfied sigh. 2nd August, 2017

Love it. My mother made the best plum jam back in the day. Simply can not buy store bought plum jams like that today.. Homemade biscuits spread with her plum jam or blackberry preserves was to die for. Great poem my friend... A fav..

I know this fruit. We call it sapeda and chiku. Perhaps the english name is Sapodilla as well. Sweet poem about this sweet fruit.

You're right, Afzal, we call it Sapota in Tamil and it's Chiku in Hindi. I never knew it was called Naseberries or Sapodilla plums till I wrote this poem ;)
