Ball Fruit Tree
rating: 0+x

The Ball Fruit Tree, a common tree dotting the savannas of the Verdant Coast, is named after the peculiar properties of its fruits. Melon-sized but deceptively light, they are coated with a rubbery substance which causes them to bounce several times when falling down from the top of the tree. Several days later, when the fruit bursts, it releases its seed usually some distance away from the mother tree - a useful trait, considering the vast root network of this tree species. Furthermore, it is a popular sport among local children and youths to kick such fruit around, helping the trees to spread even further. Some of the more playful animal species native to the area, such as wild dogs and various species of apes, have also been observed to chase the ball fruits around.
