Kirala

By Dusan
Hi All
been a bit busy lately with work ect.not a lot of time to spend here
This is the flower of the Kirala Tree

'Kirala' is a mangrove plant, which grows in the coastal areas in Sri Lanka, and Kiralakele, which is literally a forest of a mangrove, (Sonneratia caseolaris) at Ambalantota is a captivating site predominating an extent of 80 acres, which will make headway as a coastal mangrove environmental system, and it is earmarked to conserve the trees, fauna and flora, creepers, various aquatic species abounding the area as well as birds and insects for the benefit of the future generation. So, Kirala is a productive plant for the residents of the area. A delicious and nutritional drink is prepared with the ripe 'Kirala' fruits that contain a lot of vitamins. People in the area make a living by collecting and selling the Kirala fruits. The price of a fruit is about five rupees.
