I posted the first photo to my Facebook wall. I asked my friends to guess the flower photo, as i am sure not many knows what a cassava flower looks like. I was smiling when i did so, and anticipating a whole lot of guesses.
I am very familiar with cassava since i was young, both the plant and the roots. We make the roots to some sweet delicacies, and i love all of them. Some Asian countries also use the young shoots as vegetable, but we don't eat that yet. But its flower, i confess, i did not scrutinize till now. I am almost sure that not many scrutinize it too, except for the breeders of course.
My joke in FB was not that successful though, a breeder friend immediately put the right answer. So the rest of the FB friends already got it from there.
Here, the two fruits are almost at the same sizes and ages.
I hope i imparted a little information to others in these few photos.
