Our fruit trees are famous for bumper crops, year in and year out But this, what you see, I could say was the ‘ mother of all bumpers’.
Those are petals of the bell fruit flowers strewn densely on the ground a first time here at Solitiaire.
You can imagine what followed. There were countless fruits and most importantly squirrels and birds made this tree their home for quite a few months.
The fruits have delicate stems and the nimble feet of birds and squirrels were enough to drop those fruits down creating another great carpet on the floor.
Have you eaten bell fruits?
