Flowers Regenerated By 30,000 Year Old Fruits And A Squirrel

February 24, 2012

Like every other kid in America I once stuck two toothpicks in an avocado pit and put the pit in a jar only to be saddened by the realization that although my plant grew it did not bear fruit. How incredibly sad I would have been to have read this article featured in Discover magazine about 30,000 year old fruit bearing fruit.

Apparently an Upper Pleistocene squirrel burried the fruit along the banks of the Kolyma River in Russia, according to this article in Discover magazine. Click on the link to read the full story written by award winning writer Ed Yong.
