This little thing here is the Eight Leaved Cloveberry - you may remember me speak of it before. Well here's some more detail!
It has a very small seed that looks like a dew drop - the thing you see on the top of the berry there. they grow with a twisted, almost wooden like stem and are often confused for trees, not only for their stem, but also their height! The taller it grows, the more berries will be on it! The largest known specimen of an Eight Leaved Cloveberry has grown to a towering 31ft tall (nearly 10 meters tall), huge no? the smallest recorded specimen has been seen at 1ft (Nearly half a meter)
They start off bitter tasting, but then blossomed into flavours of sweetness and spiciness! But never take the nectar of its flowered form before it becomes a berry, its poisonous! The fruit is green and teal, while the leaves are dark crimson and the flowers come in a wide variety of colours.
The Cloveberry has been used in a menagerie of dishes, ranging from sorbets and ice creams, to curries and stews for their sweet and spiciness with a spiciness of 1,500 scoville units! An absolute delicacy in Alogenis is the soup made with these berries and cooled, then poured over leftover rice. Gives the dual flavours a refreshing touch in summer!
