From Google -
Sometimes eaten fresh, although fruits must be dark orange-ripe to eat. The unripe fruits are not edible and are poisonous. The kangaroo apple also has a variety of medicinal uses
I always believed they were, but never tried them.
there's some 'interesting' herbal brews with them

Yeah, in central Australia there's a couple of edible species of solanum, commonly known as desert raisins (mainly Solanum centrale), and a few species that are toxic. Not only do the desert raisins need to be very ripe and dark orange to eat but (as the common name suggests) somewhat dried and shrivelled.

looks like it :-)
There were bugs everywhere. Hadn't seen as many for a while. Warm, humid weather might have added a few

Those are all gorgeous images Richard. Picking a favorite is hard, but I'm going with the beautiful poppy shot (last one in the series).


LD, or Mike
Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

Thanks Mike, appreciate your comments
I'm very partial to those poppies, they really are nice.
But that colour I find so hard to photograph. And that poppy also presents challenges.

Thanks Renata. I spotted it in a tropical garden room, high above the ground. It was the first time I was seeing it and there was no name plate on it :-(
