May 2nd, Day 352: Prince’s Pine

Fruit Info: Chimaphila umbellata is your new fruit of the day and boy is it’s fruit pretty uneventful. As far as I can tell it’s fruit has no real uses other than reproduction. The plant itself though has a handful of uses. The roots and leaves can be boiled to make tea, the plant can be used as a flavoring in candy and soft drinks, and apparently some tribes used it try and treat tuberculosis.

It looks like a scepter and now I want to grow this.

May 3rd, Day 353: Hardy Kiwifruit

Fruit Info: Also known as the Siberian kiwifruitx today’s fruit of the day is rather interesting looking. It is, for almost all intents and purposes, a hairless kiwifruit. But the main difference is that it grows in a thin and lightly leathery material that doesn’t even need to be peeled before you can eat it.

May 4th, Day 354: Jogan Fruit

Fruit Info: Despite being relatively common there doesn’t exist much easily discoverable information about today’s fruit. What we do know though is that the fruit can be eaten raw or cooked. It serves as the namesake ingredient in, and garnish for, Jogan Fruitcake. The fruits are, unsurprisingly, grown on the Jogan tree which is grown in large orchids on the planet Lothal.

Fruit Info: Native to the temperate forests of Far East Russia, Japan, China, and Korea today’s fruit is a close relative of the kiwifruit. Actinidia kolomikta is a lovely plant used primarily for ornamental purposes. Unfortunately I can’t find much on the berries it produces.

May 6th, Day 356: Plantain

Fruit Info: The primitive ancestor of the modern banana, today’s fruit is the lovely Musa balbisiana. it’s an interesting look into what fruits actually looked like before humans got ahold of them. We bred a lot of very specific traits into them to make them more to our liking. This fruit is also native to the Southern Asia, Southeast Asia, and the eastern side of India.

May 7th, Day 357: Yunnan Banana

Fruit Info: Here’s the entire Wikipedia article: “Musa itinerans, the Yunnan banana, is a species of banana. The tender inner stalk is also harvested and eaten. It is the landmark 24,200th plant species saved at Kew Gardens' Millennium Seed Bank Project. With this addition the seed bank has collected 10% of the world’s wild plant species. The endangered M. itinerans is native to China and is an important food for wild Asian elephants.”

May 9th, Day 359: Red Banana

Fruit Info: Have you ever looked at a banana and thought to yourself “well gee wiz, that banana sure is swell, but just imagine how done diddly great it would look in red”? Well if you have then you’re in luck! Today’s fruit is exactly as its name suggests, it is a red banana. But this lovely banana does more than make a fashion statement, it also has higher levels of beta carotene and vitamin c than their yellow peers. They also tend to have thicker peels, are slightly smaller, and have a notably longer shelf life than other bananas. Overall a pretty neat fruit.

That's fascinating.. I feel like I've read somewhere that all bananas are clones, so do you know how this would happen or is that statement false?
