Weird plant fruit – stage 3 of 4

Weird plant fruit – stage 3 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 it is getting a bit softer and feels really full of water..

The colours have deepened to dark wine and there are red nubs and some are still green.

What is going on!

  1. Hmmm… I’m going to have to reach into the archives to see if there are any foliage photos. The leaves were very large and glossy. The whole thing was the size of a small shrub.

    Thanks for the effort!
