Ripe cashew nut Featured 11 Oct 2004 Print

Ripe cashew nut

Ripe cashew nut. Image 2 of 2. Native to South America, the cashew (Anacardium occidentale) is now widely cultivated throughout the tropics. Cashew trees produce a fruit, known as an apple (centre), and a nut (lower centre). The nut forms before the fruit swells and ripens, which takes two months. Once harvested, the fruit is often discarded in favour of the nut, although it can be used to make jellies, jams and juice. The nut must be removed from its shell with care, as the shell contains an allergen that can cause dermatitis. Cashew nuts are used in a variety of sweet and savoury recipes. Photographed in Grenada. See B790/237 for an unripe cashew nut

VLBA radio telescope

Hawaii VLBA radio telescope. Technician using a laptop computer below the dish antenna of one of the radio telescopes in the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) network. This international network consists of ten telescopes located from Hawaii to the Virgin Islands. The VLBA network simulates a giant antenna by using interferometry techniques to combine the data obtained by the individual telescopes. Each antenna weighs 240 tonnes, is nearly as tall as a ten-storey building, and has a dish with a 25 metre diameter. The telescope obtains measurements of centimetre long radio wavelengths. This dish antenna is located on the extinct volcano Mauna Kea in Hawaii, USA

Kapok - Mature fruit splitting and releasing silky hairs embedded with seeds
Manning Gorge in the Kimberleys, Western Australia.
Cochlospermum fraseri
Each seed has a parachute which can be dispersed by the wind. This species prefers rocky hill slopes and ridges. It flowers in the Dry Season at which time all leaves fall. After flowering green barrel-shaped fruits approximately 8cm long are produced. Australian aborigines used a bark and flower decoction which they drank for fevers. The mature hairy seeds were used for body decoration and stuffing for cushions.
