wow I seeing this one for the first time
I grew them when I was in primary school - oh the joy when those yellow flowers bloomed
The 3rd photo looks like giagantic natural painting
This one is even more baffling than cinnamon. "Well, John appears to have died after eating one. But there's just GOT to be a way to prepare those green squash testicles so we could all enjoy them."
Proof that chocolate is a vegetable and therefore beneficial to my health
I've got two at home. They look exactly look like this.
Had no idea it grew like this. Very cool.
What's with the Braille-like dots at the bottom of the pods? Anyone care to explain?
ahhh such pretty flowers
And that's why saffron is so scary expensive. There are only two stamens per crocus, and they have to be carefully harvested by hand, one at a time.
And now I want to work on a kiwi farm...
It's like peaking behind the curtain... I just assumed it was made from wizardry
Powdered cinnamon is delicious sawdust :D
what's going on with the second one? It looks fake
not a very accurate depiction. its more of an artistic photo than one which shows how they grow.
who knew that innocent little plant could melt your sinuses
Ripe ones make black pepper, green ones make white pepper.
I thought it was a gift brought by hipster fairies.. along with Kale
My grandpa has a huge avocado tree
The white ones are actually under the ground..
they look like plums
It probably why dragon fruits are expensive. You have to fight a cactus to get one.
Looks like it comes with its own basket.
i've read it "permission" :D
The little green flower buds are the capers. The small unripe fruits are eaten too. In Dutch they are called 'caper-apples'.
Keroro's favourite. ☆
This exactly how I imagined something-I-never-heard-of-before growing.
More of a bush
