    Fruit Orchard opp Candi Sukuh: Local Fruit : Jeruk Bali ( Pomelo )

    by bpacker Written Feb 6, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Definition of Jeruk Bali : A huge citrus fruit the size of a small soccer ball. The exterior is green and spongy while the interior contains segments of fleshy, juicy segments. It's called a (jeruk bali) 'Balinese orange' in Java with 'Jeruk' being the ubiquitous term for anything that resemble a citrus fruit. It's simply called a Pomelo in Singapore.

    Favorite Dish: Just opposite the Candi Sukuh lies a little fruit orchard where clusters of Pomelo Trees could be found. When I asked my guide for the local name of the fruit, he replied "Jeruk Bali", it led me to think it was a strange looking orange that came from Bali. And the orange was bloody big too. It was only after I returned home that I found out it was simply a Pomelo. Duh!

    Waterfall (1)

    by egonwegh Updated Jun 16, 2015

    We visited this spot on a rainy day. The waterfall Grojogan Sewu can be reached along a somewhat slippery footpath, but it is well worth the effort! It is a prominent tourist attraction in this region, lots of locals come here too - we visited on a national holiday, Ascension Day. I've read somewhere that the waterfall has a height of 81 meters.

    Waterfall (2)

    by egonwegh Updated Jan 25, 2007

    That's me in front of the Tawangmangu waterfall. Underneath the waterfall is a pond and at that same level, down below in the gorge, you'll also find a restaurant - I had a small bottle of Tehbotol there, a local drink similar to ice tea (I already knew our tour guide dislikes the taste very much, but it tasted okay to me ...)
