Thorn Apple

September 2010

Since felling the trees in December/March and planting our fruit trees for the bees, we have discovered many new varieties of wild flowers.   One very unusual plant we have never seen before is the Thorn Apple.  Poisonous, but truly amazing with a height and width of 4 feet (122cm)!  The thorn apples that develop are indeed handsome, measuring 3″ (8cm)!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UPDATE 2012: Sadly this is no longer found on the reserve.
