Durian trees grow in Lim Chu Kang cemetery

Durian trees grow in Lim Chu Kang cemetery
How unusual to see durians growing here, says a STOMPer, who snapped this picture of durian trees seen growing in the Chinese cemetery at Lim Chu Kang.

This STOMPer says:

"This picture was taken at the Chinese Cemetery Path 17 off Lim Chu Kang Road.

"The durian tree grows among the tombs.

"The famous naturalist, Alfred Russel Wallace, described the durian as such, 'It is like a buttery custard flavoured with almonds, intermingled with wafts of flavour that call to mind cream-cheese, onion sauce, brown sherry and other incongruities.'

"Even Wallace ran out of words to describe the king of tropical fruits."
