Grad student getting my MA in translation and interpretation. Distance runner, vegan, queer. Food, warm weather, rainstorms, music, cross stitch, good books, & close friends are my greatest loves.

The Brazilian Jabuticaba tree (Plinia cauliflora) well and truly takes advantage of all the surface area on its trunk by growing its sweet, grape-like fruits all over.
* This syndrome of growing fruit on the trunk is called cauliflory, and is believed to have evolved to make fruit more accessible to gound based frugivorous animals. The fruits are a popular food for humans in parts of South America, and have a wide variety of preparations and uses. (- Paxon)
