Atis

The Sugar Apple (Annona squamosa L.) or atis in Filipino is a small deciduous tree that reaches a height
of about 15 to 20 ft (4.6-6.1 m) and spread. Sugar apples are a common fruit tree in the home landscape throughout
the tropics. Its leaves are dull, pale green, hairy when young but smooth at maturity, thin, lanceolate to oblong
lanceolate, and 2.5 to 4 inches long (6.4-10.2 cm).
Sugar apple trees produce flowers on -1 to 2-year-old wood and in new vegetative growth. Flowers are small, about
1 inch long (2.54 cm), produced singly or in clusters of 2 to 4 from the leaf axils on year-old shoots or new growth.
The flowers are composed of 3 green, fleshy petals, 3 small, inconspicuous sepals, and numerous pistils on a
common receptacle.

The aggregate fruit is heart-shaped, round, ovate, or conical, from 2 to 5 inches (5.1-12.7 cm) in diameter and
weighs from 4 to 24 oz (113-682 g). The fruit is composed of loosely cohering segments, which project as rounded
protuberances and are easily separated when the fruit is ripe. The pulp of green and purplish-red sugar apples is
white or creamy white, with a custard-like consistency and sweet, pleasant flavor. There are numerous, small, shiny,
dark brown seeds embedded in the pulp.

Bakauan

Bakauan lalaki

Rhizophora apiculata Blume

Physical Characteristics

The leaves of the bakauan lalaki are dark, glossy, green, opposite, apex acuminate, ovate-lanceolate, and 7.9 to 19
centimeters long and 3.9 to 8.8 centimeters wide. Stipules and petioles are reddish or purplish.

Its flower stalks are very short, shorter than the petioles; two-flowered on axils below the leaves, pale-greenish yellow;
bracteoles at the base of the flower, stalk complete, connate bulbous, heavily fissured, over-all brown corky appearance,
petals glabrous, oblong, membranous, not hooded or involute.

The fruit is distinctly small when mature, cork-shaped, and rough-textured.

Locations

Bakauan lalaki is found in mangroves, coastal swamps, and along tidal riversides, up to 20 meter altitude throughout the
Philippines and nearly always occupying a dominant role in littoral forest. Its supply is abundant, although the more
settled areas, the depleted the relatively large trees are since they are cut for firewood. It is planted in the swamps of
Rizal, Bulacan, Pampanga, and Bataan, where there are fishponds, for windbreaks and as protection against
Balig-ang- Also called bahag, baligang or igot. This fruit species is INDIGENOUS to the Philippines. The tree is medium-
sized, 9 meters or more high. The fruits are borne in compact clusters, small up to 20mm in diameter, round, dark red to
black, rather dry but of pleasant acid flacor. The fruit is used in the making of preserces, wine, pickle, beverages and
jelly. It is a good source of protein.
