This little wild fruit opens like a flower to release its seeds .....
Brazilian name: Melão de São Caetano
Lindo Rubens! Nunca vi igual!
I have NEVER seen this before. Cool spotting. Awesome pictures.
Interesting, thank you for sharing :)
To answer Jeannette below: The orange pod is hollow but the seeds are each thinly covered with a sweet slimy red coating. As children we used to put the seeds in our mouth suck all the red off then spit out the seeds.
Sensacional imagen que flor ...
Wow, amazing :)Is it edible?
