  1. AVERRHOA BILIMBI

    Clusters of beautiful, deepest blood-red flowers bloom from the trunk, often in great number toward the bottom of the tree. These are followed by impressive clumps of attractive, slightly multi-lobed, oblong fruits, which have a pale green waxy skin, and crunchy flesh, very similar to the star fruit, a single tree often producing hundreds and hundreds of fruits. This is essentially a tropical tree, less resistant to cold than the carambola, in Florida, where it is an occasional curiosity, it prefers protection from wind and cold. It has countless other uses, including being used either curried, or added as a souring agent for the common Filipino dish sinigang. The uncooked bilimbi is often prepared as relish, and served with rice and beans in Costa Rica. In the Far East where it originated, it is occasionally added to curry. The juice is also made into a cooling beverage, and in Indonesia it is added to some dishes as a substitute for tamarind or tomato. Additionally, the fruit can be preserved by pickling,which reduces its acidity, and finally the flowers can also be preserved in sugar. Some fruit! ... Learn More

  6. MANDRAGORA AUTUMNALIS (MANDRAKE)

    Although the rare "Mandrake" was once considered an aphrodisiac, all parts of it, especially the large, yellow, tomato-like fruits which follow the brown and yellow flowers, must be treated as poisonous. There are two forms or species, this one which flowers in the autumn, and the other, Mandragorum officinalis in the spring. A large number of halucinogenic and pharmaceutical chemicals are derived from this ancient plant, and although many flowers open, very few ever produce any viable fruits at all, hence the regrettably high price. Traditionally, a dog pulled up the man-like roots and their scream reputedly killed all who heard it! ... Learn More

  8. SOLANUM MAMMOSUM

    A truly amazing-looking plant producing positively inedible, ornamental fruits which resemble a cow's udder at one end and human breast at the other, and with lots of rather rude common names too! Although it is perennial it can be grown as an annual, and is related to the naranjilla and tomato with large velvety leaves with purple veins and furry hair, along with prominent spikes. The branches and stems are also dotted with firm thorns. The pink-purple flowers develop during spring and are followed by the waxy, yellow colored fruit ripening a few months later. It has been used in traditional medicine for the treatment of athlete's foot by hunters in Trinidad and also for irritability and restlessness. It is imported to Taiwan and Hong Kong as decorative foliage for use in religious and festival floral arrangements. They are also commonly used in building Chinese New Year trees due to their auspicious golden coloured fruit. ... Learn More

  10. TOMATILLO VERDE
