Snapshot: Olona fruit

One of the best feelings when doing restoration work is seeing your efforts paying off. Here, one of the Olona (Touchardia latifolia) has finally come into full infructescence. The Manoa population seems to exhibit some morphological diversity. These mature fruits are a much paler color than usual orange. There are several plants with these lighter colored fruits. Whether there is any genetic correlation for this remains to be seen.
