Metallic Blue African Fruits

The head of the 1ft 6in high Pollia condensata plant that ranges from Ethiopia to Angola and Mozambique, which scientists today revealed as the most colourful plant ever seen

Fancy a bite? Despite this fruit looking radioactive enough to turn you into the incredible hulk or other such comic book characters, this eye-catching berry is completely natural.

This iridescent fruit is made up of cells which all reflect different colours. This makes the overall appearance of these small berries change depending on which angle you look at them from. They grow from the Pollia Condensata plant which grows in Angola, Ethiopia and Mozambique and the natives use them for decoration in the home.

That’s because this fruit has absolutely no nutritional value. They certainly won’t count towards your 5 a day so they won’t be finding their way into your office fruit delivery any time soon.

But that are very pretty to look at. Office Christmas decorations maybe?
