|FRUITS OF BERBA AT TERESA ORCHARD & NURSERY|
Thanks to Joseph Reyes, he provided the botanical name of Berba which is from Brazil. He says the botanical name is Rodius edulis. When we posted it in our blog (June 17, 2012), a number of page viewers commented. One lady said she used to see a lot ot Berba in her native Sorsogon. Another commented that Berba is very common in Bicol.
Joseph Reyes said that the small fruit tree was brought by the religious orders who settled in Bicol long time ago. That is why some people call it native to the Philippines. Now we know, it is a native of Brazil and its scientific name is Rodius edulis.
