Weird plant fruit – stage 1 of 4
Image by Happy Sleepy
I have yet to look up this plant to get it’s name – I saw it repeatedly throughout Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and was able to shoot progressive stages of the development of the compound fruit on this really weird bloom.
This photo shows a section of a foot long (30cm) stem that is about 2 inches (5cm) thick.
The colours were really intense and beautiful, and of course the texture.
At this stage is hard like a tough cauliflower, almost like carved out of wood. The colours are an even green with a light blue-grey, waxy sheen.
