The flowers are so fascinating. They really look like some type of plastic tubes. How long are they?

They are over my head but from my perspective I'd say they are between 2-3 inches long. The flower on the far right that has lost the white tube is the start of the berry. They are edible but look like plastic too! I can't imagine eating one or what it would taste like!

I read about them and they are considered extreme super fruits with antioxidants 2-4 times higher than North American blueberries

From experience things that good for you usually taste bad nodding
