Name That Plant ANSWER
May 10, 2010
On Friday, we asked our fans if they could identify this plant:
The plant is the fruit of the pin cushion tree (Sarcocephalus latifolius), sometimes called African peach. The tree is in the public gardens near the ticket office at the Estates. The fruit will turn a rosy pink as it matures and it resembles a pin cushion. Fruits are edible but not very tasty.
