Dona Eunice loves plants and trees, so it was no surprise to discover something new in her yard, which is no more than 50 meters from the clear waters of the Tapajós River. She tells me the fruit tree in the attached image is a noni, native of Pakistan. It sure is different from any fruit I've ever seen. If I had run into it by myself, I would have guessed that it was a wasp nest. Someday I hope to taste this fruit.
