The breathtaking African rainforest fruit that is the 'most colourful known to science'

The head of the 1ft 6in high Pollia condensata plant that ranges from Ethiopia to Angola and Mozambique, which scientists today revealed as the most colourful plant ever seen. Pollia condensata's vivid sparkle comes from the interaction of light with its skin, which contains layers of microscopic cellulose fibers. The effect is a metallic blue brighter than any yet described in a biological material.

The Blue Moon pumpkin is quite an interesting pumpkin. The outside is blue and the flesh is cantaloupe's orange. It's edible, for pie's etc and very cool to decorate with.
