Genipa americana, huito, jagua

These beauties are carpeting the jungle floor here in Panama right now. Genipa americana has become a new favorite. I have not yet tasted its wild fruits, or been able to make a blue-black dye from its immature fruits, but I have begun a relationship with this tree…and that is a beautiful place to start.
