mystery fruitSometimes when wandering through a new neighborhood or a market you come across something new and there is just no one to ask about it. Normally you just forget about it because sadly you can't just enter a photo in Google and ask it to find information for you. (Note to Google: have you thought of developing this??)

However, I have all of our readers out there and as you are an intelligent and lively lot I'm sure you'll be happy to help me out. So what is in this photo? We noticed these fruits while staying with friends in the village St. Just in the Poitou-Charentes last week. At first sight, they looked like apricots - the size was right and the colours covered exactly the same range of yellow, to deep yellow to apricot-orange. But on closer inspection we couldn't help but notice that they were not fuzzy. Are they edible? Is it just a decorative plant? As you can see in this photo, the plant has lovely flowers. So maybe we are not meant to eat it. If any of you recognise the fruit or the flower I'd be very grateful for your input!! Just click on the comments link below...
