Dear Friends,

Vanakkam! Greetings from Chennai.

Image Information     :    I saw this small tree with peculiar fruits on them closer to Chennai (Pancheti); It was late in the evening, not much light to ph0tograph clearly. The flash has made the pics a bit odd, but still good enough for ID I guess. I’m also inserting the pics of the fruit open with red seeds (like pomegranate) and the covered one as a bunch.
Species name           :    Unidentified
Location                   :    Chennai (Aprox lat=13o17’ N, lon=80o09’ E)
Date                        :    Saturday, 09 January 2010
Photographer(s)         :    N. Ramjee 
Additional Remarks   :    The fruits had a bright green spider on them without webs J 
 

Thank you.

With kind regards,

The fruits in  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bixa_orellana.jpg
shows them in red colour. The one I saw were in bright grassy-green!
Do they take that colour as they mature?
thank you.
regards,
ramjee

Bixa orellana is called annatto colour plant. The seeds yield a saffron/red dye which is edible (I have tried using it). It is used for colouring food stuff as well as cloth.
