IT is always gratifying to do your own experimentation. Just like what we did in our farm. We marcotted the Palamuti bignay we got from the Mariano Marcos State University in Batac City. In one year, the marcot which we planted in a pail bore fruit.

If you have one in your garden with its cute berries, it could be a conversation piece among visitors and friends. You could just imagine if the potted plant has more branches and full of berries, it could be very decorative.

Palamuti is a variety of bignay that was first popularized by the Institute of Plant Breeding in UP Los BaƱos. Planting materials were obtained by MMSU and several trees are planted along the the road inside the campus. Dr. Gliceria Pascua, retired professor from MMSU, observes that the Palamuti trees at MMSU are ever-bearing.

Bignay, by the way, is a very good material for making wine. It is one product that the town of Adams in Ilocos Norte is very proud of.

  1. Please let me know if your grafted Palamuti Bignay plant that bore fruit produced both female flowers and male flowers on the same plant, or did you have male flowers on another plant on your property?
