[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most plants of Mandragora autumnalis are bearing fruit now. They bloomed in November-December. Please see my posting: www.treknature.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=225839, for the buds flowers. This particular specimen, growing at an elevation of about 900 m, has had new flowers in addition to the first round, thus showing here both flower and fruit. The tomato-like fruit (same family!) is poisonous, a fact that delayed the acceptance of tomato as a staple food in the Old World, after being brought from the New.
