|Celia Fruit Tree|
Pampinus Bacca Acinum
|Behind the scenes|
Celia fruit tree (Na'vi name: tumpasuk) is multi-trunked, deciduous tree with long, hanging vines from which grow massive seed pods.
Ecology[edit | edit source]
Squat, thick-trunked tree with multiple thick branches. It produces a 30cm long bulbous pod that holds a tendril-like strand of edible seeds/berries. A common food source for tetrapteron and prolemuris.
Ethnobotany[edit | edit source]
The Na'vi gather the seed berries by climbing into the trees, dangling upside-down from the branches and cutting the strand out of the pod from the inside. Another Na'vi will be under the pod on the ground and will catch the falling seed berry strand in a woven net to not damage the ripe fruit.
