Native Fruits of Summer

Elderberries and Other Native Fruits of Summer

California native plants provided a rich and varied diet for the native peoples; this is a flora of plentitude, and I really like to partake of it. I recently picked and cleaned the fruits of Lemonade Berry (Rhus integrifolia) and in removing the flesh from seed within, discovered that, true to its common name, these fruits make a wonderful pink, Indian lemonade!

Vegetative Propagation


It is possible to grow a whole new plant from a tiny piece because plants possess TOTIPOTENCY; which means that every living cell of that plant contains the genetic information necessary for reconstituting all the plant parts and functions!
