LE0200 Lapageria rosea 5 very fresh seeds from September/Oktober 4.07

Lapageria rosea or Chilean Bellflower, is the national flower of Chile. It grows in forests in the southern part of Chile. It is the only species in the genus Lapageria.
It is an evergreen climbing plant reaching over 10 m high among shrubs and trees. Leaves are arranged alternately and are evergreen, leathery, lanceolate and feature three to seven prominent parallel veins. The vines twine counterclockwise.
The flowers are red spotted with white, there are six thick, waxy tepals; and they are most frequently produced in late summer and fall, although they may be produced at other times.
The fruit is an elongate berry with a tough skin containing numerous small seeds about the size of a tomato seed, and are covered in an edible fleshy aril.
In the wild the plant is pollinated by hummingbirds. Seed is distributed by birds and other animals.

The fruit is colloquially known in Chile as a pepino (cucumber). In the past, the fruit was sold in markets, but the plant has now become rare through over-collection and forest clearance.

This product was added to our catalog on Sunday 13 February, 2011.
