There’s always undeniable beauty to be found in the world around us.
An unquestionable part of the allure is the sheer variety of plants and flowers to be found, the rock formations, the vibrant colors, the rich smells and unusual sights.
If you like to travel, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. One of the most enthralling things about visiting a foreign country is the opportunity to experience nature in a way you never have before. Now, I’ve never been to Brazil, but when I came across a picture of the jabuticabeira plant, I’ll admit to being lost for words of a moment. Want to know more? Then read on below…
If, like me, you’re unfamiliar with the jabuticabeira tree, which is native to Brazil, there’s every chance you’ll be equally taken back by its appearance. If you ask me, there’s something very odd about the way the tree – also called the Brazilian Grape Tree – bears its fruit. The jabuticaba fruit, a purplish-black in color, grows directly on the trunk, and so it almost makes it look like the tree is being swarmed by some sort of alien insect.
