What You See Might Not Be True

By Deeksh

Hi Friends,

Today when I was checking my inbox, I found very interesting mail (rather I call it STRANGE mail). It was about a tree called Nareepol, which is believed to be located at Petchaboon province 500 kms away from Bangkok. The mail had few pics of this tree.

Out of curious I Google’d to see if I get more of info on this, specially pics. Alternatively I wanted to check if this info is updated in Wikipedia.

To my surprise I could see lots of blogs on this with same info, nothing less nor more. Even Wiki dint have info.

As I was reading all those blogs, the bloggers believed the existence of the tree, but I found many comments (who were thinking jus the way I did) which were not in favor.

Almost all image-pages in Google showed same pics. They are of same angle and repeated pics from the same tree.

I am seriously thinking, if it is real, why have I not come across this these many years?

One of the blog said that 100 years old books mention about this tree.. but the blogger failed to mention any of those books name.

When I saw the pics in my mail box, I was not sure of what I was viewing. But now very much.

It is total internet hoax.



I think there is no proper evidence to prove what bloggers are saying. Every blog you visit, have posted same set of pics.

I try to watch Ripley’s Believe It Or Not regularly. Never I have come across abut this tree.

There is no channel or other media which covered this news. Not even in Discovery Channel.

Seeing all this, I remember a post by one of our Crazy Bloggers – on Mass Media.

Usage of Internet. Amazing stuffs were covered in the post. Both pros and cons were discussed.

One such negative usage is such cases.

The tree is well performed hoax by some talented person, I would say extremely talented. The person has made a story, morphed pics and at last publishing it in Mass Media – the Internet.

Why should someone spread rumors?

Most interesting thing that I came across while browsing on this topic was – COMMENTS.

I read lotssssss of stories on this tree.

I appreciate these story owners for being so creative and imaginative. Common let us use this creativity for betterment of man kind.

Before ending this post, all I want to say is – Don’t believe what you listenmany a times even what you see might not be true

This quote is very true, in life – it is very important to value relations, and we should not be carried away by what we listen or see…..

Always there is a reason for what has happened (not valid too).

I don’t understand the reason behind such rumors. What are they getting in return??

Critics?? Name?? Fame?? Thufffff??

He hee..

Hey, you have viewed the above set of pics which shows human shaped fruits.

Now I have tried to mark the morph spots.

  2. Agree with your words...creativity for betterment of mankind!

    However, if you just review the morphology (no pun intended) of this so-called Nareepol tree and its human shaped fruits, it is definitely not a perfect art. Few things I noticed was only after reading some descriptive reviews on this particular tree. And, I guess many of us would have probably observed. The junction where each so-called "fruit" joins the branch is easily covered by leaves (probably for the purpose of hiding the wire or twine holding the fruit in the air). Naturally, fruits (of a same tree) come in different shapes and sizes. Their shapes may not be very varied to a large extent, but some symmetrical changes would definitely be there. These fruits are so identical…be it in size, shape or symmetry. So….don’t you feel…it’s a flawed art piece?

  5. In the first place I didn't believe it, but last year my husband and me travel to Thailand. I acutally saw the tree with my own eyes. The tree is actually inside the buddha temple garden. Everyone is forbidden to go there. If you want to go see the tree, you have to bring white flowers, scents and white candles. My husband acutally picked a man from the tree and I had picked a woman from tree. The buddha say it only happen every 10 years. If you don't believe I recommend anyone to go see it.

  6. I have to agree with you... this is purely fake. The first thing I noticed was the joints of the fruit branch - they are covered with leaves, and one of it looked like it was just purposefully attached, like described by the blogger.

    If the question "why they do they do this?" is asked, I could only think of one thing. To my opinion, the local people from Petchaboon are probably trying their level best to increase the popularity of their little town and make it into a tourism spot. People do get to extreme measures these days to make profit.

  7. The way to prove it is a fake is the giveaway evident immature flower/ fruit (Pic 1 & 3) that is next to the fake image and and the leafs.

    Those who work in the agricultural sector could verify the type of tree and its bearings.

  8. The pictures are faked. Nareepol (pronounced "naree-pon" in Thai) means "fruit woman" not "woman tree" and is a mythical creature mentioned in ancient Thai Buddhist texts. See http://www.sacredsiam.com/thailand-amulets/nareephon-nareepol-fruit-maidens.html for the full story on this.
