Weird plant fruit – stage 2 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 still rather hard, almost like carved out of wood, and the nubs are starting to erupt.
The colours are a bright green with dark burgundy dots. Fantastical!
