    So, no phytonutrients here?

    Did this thing change sex? I was given the name Elaeocarpus angustifolia for one of my photos, and I see several references to that name. I’ve now renamed mine, as angustifolius seems to be correct. It has changed species name from A. grandis.
    I can contribute a link to a photo of buttress roots: https://www.flickr.com/photos/wlcutler/16050811197/

    2 superb images and an well-researched article for a little known fruit.
    Thank you for enlightening us.

    I’ve enjoyed this site very much as I am always interested in plants. I would also like to know if they are useable for food or not. Is this possible?

    If you like this blue, try the native Clintonia borealis 🙂 For someone shoulder deep in snow, this site is a godsend!

    Iridescence is probably a cheaper thing to produce than actual pigments which take a lot of energy and reserves to maintain

    Thank you so much for your beautiful photographs over this winter.. They have cheered me through the coldest winter in this part of Quebec for a hundred years… spring begins tomorrow but it is -16C today!

    The Bower Birds in that region of Australia are very attracted to anything blue. I recall from nature shows.
