Anacardiaceae


Anacardiaceae
Originally uploaded by lekowala.
Besides the wild nutmegs were these wild Anacardiaceae fruits (fruit large, fleshy with large flattened stone set with coarse fibres enclosing one seed). They can be very poisonous! Example of a poisonous species is the Lanjut (after which the Jalan Lanjut is named), where the "vapour of the freshly bruised fruit tissues can affect the skin".
