Pajurá de Óbidos, continued

This is another pajurá de Óbidos seed. I understand that the fruit itself is much larger than the "true" pajurá (Couepia bracteosa). I'd love to see one myself. In the meanwhile, I've planted two seeds at Bosque Santa Lúcia. In researching this fruit, I gather that it's indeed very rare. I found only a few references and only one image.

I'm finding your blog very interesting. I visited Manaus in 2006 for 10-days and loved it. I spent 5 days on the Amazon and I'm looking forward to going back again hopefully in 2009. Keep up the great work... I'm enjoying reading about all of the plants you are writing about.
