Ruby Tuesday: red fruits


An areca palm with pretty red fruits I spotted in Corregidor Island two weekends ago. This specie of areca palm is widely used in landscaping. I'm not sure if the red fruits yield the same nut that old people chew with betel leaves, tobacco and lime.

I've always thought of those as pretty little "berries" on the palm tree :P
Happy Ruby Tuesday!!

They certainly make for lovely color on the palm. I can see why it would be used for landscaping - beautiful.

The tree looks lovely with the red fruits which look like cherries.

I thought those were betel nuts. But I'm no expert on the subject for sure. I've never heard of these though, so maybe you're right. They make a nice photo in any case.
