More Sub-Tropical Fruit in Spring
The plants in the sub-tropical fruit grove have been flowering and setting fruit.
- The macadamia nuts flowered recently and have just set fruit. This photos shows the fruits (follicles) beginning to develop.
- The Surinam cherry is not a cherry at all but belongs to the nutmeg family (Myrtaceae). The cultivated fruits of this family always seem to have strong, distinct “myrtaceous” flavours that I can only describe as resinous or “turpentine-y”. They’re certainly unique and not unpleasant. If you love turpentine, they’re delicious.
